  • I have no idea why this would be a problem? You can just zoom in on the small features. – HeikkiVesanto Aug 9 '17 at 8:29

    It is probably in the wrong projection. You should start by reading: qgistutorials.com/en/docs/working_with_projections.html and docs.qgis.org/2.2/en/docs/user_manual/working_with_projections/… – HeikkiVesanto Aug 9 '17 at 8:51

    Maybe the shapefiles have wrong units. GIS data is usually in meters or degrees, while CAD data may be in millimeters. What is the extent of your data, as reported by rightclick on the layer, properties, Metadata tab? – AndreJ Aug 9 '17 at 9:23
  • Hi good day, sorry for the late reply.. here is the extents of the shapefiles...
