This question already has an answer here:
I'm using QGIS to extract centroid coordinates in a multi-shape object from a project I was given. I want the coordinates to be regular latitude an longitude, but they're coming out huge (see below).
These locations are in New York City, so x and y should be somewhere around 74 longitude and 41 latitude. I tried to use this:
where I set the CRS layer for my shapefile and centroids to be EPSG:3628 but it doesn't appear to have worked. I have the same results using the CRS found originally in the project folder. I think these are not the problem as adding an OpenStreetMap layer using either CRS displays New York City.
