When I use the WGS 84 CRS the Chukotka peninsula east of the 180 meridian is shown on the left of the map. If I project (on-the-fly) the map using a Lambert Azimuth projection, the Chukotka peninsula is shown as a whole, but the 180 meridian is shown as a line through the peninsula.

Can someone please tell me how I can either:

  • project my map so that the 180 meridian is not shown, or
  • tell me how I can hide the meridian in the vector layer, or
  • merge the two polygons (there does not seem to be a Merge option in QGIS, unlike ArcGIS)

The syntax I am using is:

+proj=laea +lat_0=55 +lon_0=40 +x_0=4321000 +y_0=3210000 +ellps=GRS80 +towgs84=0,0,0,0,0,0,0 +units=m +no_defs

I am using QGIS 2.14.1 on Windows 10.

    can you add a screen shot or a link to one so we can see what you mean – Ian Turton May 4 '16 at 15:10
  • Wow! Andre blocks my question and refers me to another post because of duplication (fair enough) so I post my question there. Then Kersten blocks my question there because it doesn't ANSWER that question. Uh? – cdfj May 7 '16 at 5:17
  • that is because the duplicate question has an answer that solves your problem. please take the (tour)[gis.stackexchange.com/tour] if the process is unclear – Ian Turton May 7 '16 at 8:46
