This is my first time using QGIS 2.18.
I created a project with EPSG:3857.
Added OpenLayers Plug-in to use Google Street View as a map for the points and data I want to work on.
I love self-learning and learn-by-doing, I watched some vids and got an idea on how this program work.
I thought I'd make a sample to test if what I understood was right or not. I chose a point on Google Maps, right-clicked and chose "what's there" to get the coordinates. it is written as xxxxx.xxxxN, yyyyy.yyyyyE.
I added this in an excel file with 4 columns: ID, Name, Lat, Long. Saved as CSV. Opened it with notepad, saved as txt.
I then added a delimited text layer with the same ESPG:3857. The point in the file is almost at North Pole.
I tried to use some web-converters to know where the problem is but the best thing I got was like 400 km from the original location of my point.
My objective is to find a way to get coordinates from Google Maps, store in a text delimited file, add a text delimited layer and get the points where they should.
Can you help?
