I have a number of addresses that I would like to map as point data (along with attributes) in QGIS. I got the GPS coordinates from Google Maps, but when I create the layer from the table, the points are way off. I have just copied and pasted the GPS coordinates from Google maps into a spreadsheet. See image below.
They should be located around Salinas, CA, USA not off the coast of Africa. I have tried using different Coordinates Reference Systems, for example: Google Mercator, NAD83(CSRS), NAD83, WGS 84 / Simple Mercator, WGS 84 / Pseudo Mercator. I am using the Google Maps base layer from the open layer plugin, yet none of these project the points where I would like them to be.
Is it the format of the GPS coordinates?
Or I am totally using the wrong Coordinates Reference System?
