I have a large project where several files were loaded with its original CRS, not always the same. To try to speed up my project, I recently converted all .shp files under the QGIS project directory to a single CRS using GDAL's ogr2ogr. Old files were overwritten. When I check now the CRS in each layer in QGIS, the original CRS is shown.

Is there a way for QGIS to refresh the CRS of the layers?

I'm working with 2.14.14 version.

  • Can you share the output of ogrinfo of your layers ? Can you give more detail about your CRS translation – Hugo Roussaffa - GeoDatup Sep 27 '17 at 20:31

  • That is the result of ogrinfo for one layer. In Layer properties in QGIS is showing EPSG 4674 (original CRS when loaded in the project). I converted it using ogr2ogr -t_srs epsg:4326 – Ariel Loncarich Sep 27 '17 at 21:08

  • Do you saved a project file ? Can you save as ... Another possibility is to clear the cache – Hugo Roussaffa - GeoDatup Sep 27 '17 at 21:45
