Right now i,m using QGIS 2.10.1 Pisa, and i wonder if in QGIS there is any feature or plugin to resave multiple vector files that using CRS "A" into vector files using CRS "B" in 1 execution step (Batch process). I mean not save it one by one.

so far i find the closest solution (but no CRS changing) is batch processing for selected features from the toolbox - on pic enter image description here

But this feature does not have option to change the output CRS. It would be a great help if someone know how to do this in QGIS or in another standalone program that can do this kind of batch processing.

    There is a reproject tool in the Processing toolbox. Can be used in Batch Processing as well. Will that do?

Use the Reproject tool instead of Save selected features. It can be used in Batch Processing as well.

  • addition: so far, it only works if data input are selected data from filesystem not open layers (active layer that opened in qgis at the mean time). Mar 21, 2016 at 9:30
  • @MaruliManullang - Do you mean that you selected the open layers (by clicking the 3 dots for the input layer as seen in your screenshot) and they did not reproject? I just tested this on QGIS 2.12.3 for Win7 and it works fine.

  • @Joseph - Yes, that what i mean. i wonder this thing has to do with QGIS Pisa version or the size/how many features totally that want to be reprojected. Use windows 7 also. The error message that i got is " 'NoneType object has no attribute 'pendingFields' " Mar 21, 2016 at 11:34
  • @MaruliManullang - Perhaps it is an issue with the Processing plugin. You can try updating this (if you haven't already) from the toolbar: Plugins > Manage and Install Plugins. I think the latest version you can use for QGIS Pisa is 2.10.3 as mentioned in the repository.

  • @Joseph, it was updated. but this issue still occur. Mar 22, 2016 at 6:55

Well you can have a look at the extension Qpackage. It is acually meant to collect your whole project with all the loaded vectordata from different sources into a single folder. But you can choose a new CRS there. This means open all your files -> say Qpackage the new folder and the new crs -> in the new folder are the reprojected files

  • it seems also good solution, i will try this later for sure Mar 20, 2016 at 20:01
