I have two shapefiles I'm trying merge together. I want to use this shapefile in another application I use. When I import them in QGIS, they look exactly how I want them to be positioned (relative to one another). The yellow dots in the image below are from one file (Utah city locations) and the purple dots are from another file (Wyoming city locations)
The CRS for the Utah cities is "EPSG:26912, NAD83 / UTM zone 12N" and the Wyoming ones is a generated one (which I assume is because there isn't a projection file for that shapefile: "+proj=lcc +lat_1=41 +lat_2=45 +lat_0=41 +lon_0=-107.5 +x_0=500000 +y_0=200000 +ellps=GRS80 +towgs84=0,0,0,0,0,0,0 +units=m +no_defs"
The problem is, when I attempt to merge them using the vector data management tools (taskbar: Vector-->Data Management Tools-->Merge Shapefiles to One), I get a result that looks like this:
I have no idea why this is happening, I would think I should get the output that I'm seeing visually before I merge. Here's a screenshot of the merge tool:
Any ideas on how to fix this issue?
