I have a set of data with Lat/Lon co-ordinates taken from Google Earth, I've converted the co-ordinates into WKT using a short formula in a spreadsheet, converted to a csv and imported. Unfortunately Google presents its points as Lat/Lon whereas all the CRSs I usually use only seem to understand Lon/Lat. I thought there were conventions for this sort of thing so that GIS systems could talk to one another!
Anyway, does anyone know of a CRS that recognises Lat/Lon, in that order?
- Thought it might be useful to give an example - co-ordinates come to me looking like this "50.698162325700466,-4.674852266907692, 50.69849212863936,-4.674183055758476" my formula converts them to this "MULTIPOINT ((50.698162325700466 -4.674852266907692) (50.69849212863936 -4.674183055758476)). The points are all in England, so you can see they are in Lat/Lon.
- I've just thought that +axis=neu should work as a custom CRS, but it doen't seem to be translating correctly. It's turning the points around as required, but also shifting them about.
