I need to install/define a custom projection Nepal MUTM in qgis 2.14. But I don't know how to do it? Where will I get the projection code to use during defining?


It is defined at the Spatial Reference site, here. The Proj string is given as:

+proj=tmerc +lat_0=0 +lon_0=84 +k=0.9999 +x_0=500000 +y_0=0 +a=6377276.345 +b=6356075.41314024 +units=m +no_defs
  • Thank you very much for answering. I searched the code some time ago and tried it but it didn't help.. Maybe am making some mistake.. I don't get the save button in the custom CRS definition window.. i am using qgis 2.14.0 Essen.. and I am also not sure if we should write something on the TEST portion of the window? Thank you! – Yadav Ghimirey Apr 3 '16 at 12:30

    It is confusing. After giving the CRS a name and entering the Proj string press the 'plus' (+) button again. – nhopton Apr 3 '16 at 14:21
  • I did it.. the problem is that the new projection doesn't work :( – Yadav Ghimirey Apr 4 '16 at 17:23
  • I had a quick look at this document azvoleff.com/content/2011-10-13-gis-and-gps-workshop/…. From this it appears that 'Nepal Modified UTM' could in fact be any one of three projections (depending on which meridian the projection is aligned). Is it possible to post a link to a sample of your data? – nhopton Apr 7 '16 at 8:00
