Using Qgis 2.18, I am trying to load a CSV file with a column for latitude and one for longitude. The points in the CSV are for England. When I load the file, the shapefile is created, but there is a distortion (please have a look at the image)

enter image description here

I changed the CRS to the British Nation Grid, but the distortion still exists. Moreover when I load a British Grid polygon shapefile it is distorted as well (while when I load it in another project is fine) and at the same time points are not lying on the polygons (they are lost). "On the fly" is automatically enabled. At this screenshot you can she that when both files are at the same crs they don't lye each other. Points keep the distortion, their scale changes and they move where the purple dot is

Do you have any idea?

  • looks ok to me - change the map projection to epsg:27700 if you want it to be taller and thinner – Ian Turton May 15 '17 at 14:49
  • Hi! Thanks. It does not work. I updated my post in order to make things clearer. Please have a look. – Dimitris May 15 '17 at 15:01

    did you set the projection of the point layer - should be 4326? – Ian Turton May 15 '17 at 15:04
  • I did it. Both layers have the British National Grid 27700. I tried it with both layers at 4326 but nothing. – Dimitris May 15 '17 at 15:07
