Why is it that this shapefile of Washington state, when loaded into QGIS or via D3, appears large and zoomed in, like below:
Meanwhile, others, such as this Zillow neighborhoods shapefile ( also for Washington state), when loaded, looks thus:
While the first shapefile was loaded at the correct, state scale, the second, neighbourhoods file was loaded at an incorrect scale — a national one. For reference, here's what it looks like at the appropriate scale:
Is there any way to control this behaviour? Can I ensure that the Zillow shapefile of Washington state's neighborhoods loads at a larger, more zoomed in scale?
edit: this happens with geojson and topojson too.
