I'm trying to use QGIS to show earthquakes around a 3d globe. I changed my CRS to 'Sphere_Van_der_Grinten_I' and it rendered like this:

QGIS 3D render error

Here's a report from Hardinfo on my system and display:

  • Processor: 12x Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6800K CPU @ 3.40GHz
  • Memory: 65809MB (10399MB used)
  • Operating System: Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS
  • Resolution 1920x1080 pixels
  • OpenGL Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.8, 256 bits)
  • X11 Vendor: The X.Org Foundation

Updating my OpenGL renderer doesn't seem to have done anything; this screenshot is unchanged before and after I did apt-get install mesa-utils

How do I make this sphere work?

    this is probably a projection issue, rather than a graphics card issue. what version of qgis? Although the world map LOOKS like a vector layer, is it actually a raster layer? (I've seen similar issues with raster layers and know how to fix these) – Steven Kay May 4 '17 at 20:00

    It might help to use Save As ... for all layers to reproject to the target CRS and a different file name instead of relying on On-the-fly-reprojection. – AndreJ May 5 '17 at 5:10
