I have a geoTIFF with orthorectified aerial imagery in .sid format that does not project correctly in QGIS. The file originally did not have a .prj file, but projection information is stored in the file metadata, listed as "NAD_1927_Washington_North"
The file opens up and projects fine in ArcMap 10.4 (it lines up fine with other aerials, rasters, and vector data), but I don't have regular access to ArcMap. I tried exporting a .prj file for the projection from ArcMap with it correctly aligned, but that doesn't make a difference when I open it in QGIS.
My project is in EPSG:102748- Washington StatePlane North NAD 83 US Feet I have on the fly projection turned on. I have several different layer in different projections (e.g. UTM zone 10N, WGS 84) that all project fine, but I can't make this aerial line up.
I tried opening the raster in a clean workspace, then adding other data, but this doesn't seem to solve the problem.
I tried assigning a number of different projections, but couldn't find anything that worked. In EPSG: 32148, NAD83/Washington North, I can make it line up about 150 km east of the "correct" location, but can't do better without georeferencing the image from scratch.
I have intermittent access to ArcMap, so if there is something I can do to reproject the file there, it would be fine, but need to be able to use the layer in QGIS.
