I'm entirely new to QGIS and mapping services in general.
I add my data via CSV to create a new map layer (following the QGIS heatmap tutorial), I select Longitude in my X coordinate, and Latitude in Y, as shown below. If I don't do that, my data does not appear as it does when geocoded onto map services (such as BatchGeo). This seems counter-intuitive to me.
I have since found that QuickMap Services seems to be a preferred plugin, but I seem to have limited map options, and when i do pull in a map, my data points don't seem to show up where they need to be (looks like lat/long is reversed, which might relate back to how I import the data?).
Does anyone have any solutions for beginners for how to add a basemap or even alternate tutorials for creating heatmaps (on top of a basemap)?
