Perhaps someone could clear this up for me? I have a shapefile with the CRS Selected CRS (EPSG:29902, TM65 / Irish Grid)
I also have a number of XY points which take the CRS, Selected CRS (EPSG:4326, WGS84).
Although different CRS, both of the points map on to the shapefile perfectly.
However, when I wish to join these attributes by location I am unable to as they have different CRS, thus blank points.
When I try to make sure both CRS match, the shapefile and coordinates no longer match up.
I do this through layer properties > data > general function as detailed in many examples online.
Would anyone be able to tell me why the CRS align correctly when different, yet don't when the same?
Also how could I correct this to merge by location?
Edit - Note this is when both CRS are different
While this is when the CRS are the same e.g. (EPSG:29902)
Is it the case that my XY values are long lat, while the shapefile is metres?
Edit Perhaps access to the data may help?
The shapefile was downloaded from the CSO
the file being - 2013 Constituency boundaries:
These are some of the coordinates I'm working with.
Long Lat -7.24 52.64
