I am following this post about how to get lat/lon information from a point file, but without success. Does this metadata posted below provide information that changes the prescribed method for getting lat/lon for each point?
In layer spatial reference system units : xMin,yMin 1091130.77,1813891.89 : xMax,yMax 1205198.85,1951669.02 Layer Spatial Reference System: +proj=tmerc +lat_0=36.66666666666666 +lon_0=-88.33333333333333 +k=0.9999749999999999 +x_0=300000 +y_0=0 +ellps=GRS80 +towgs84=0,0,0,0,0,0,0 +units=us-ft +no_defs
I have taken the following steps:
Loaded a ESRI shapefile into QGIS with one polygon layer.
Extracted nodes to create a point layer. Vector -> Geometry Tools -> Add/Extract Nodes. I clicked the option to create new shapefile, then clicked the option to add shapefile to the current project.
Right clicked on new point layer, selected 'Save As', and specified target CRS as ESPG:4326, and added GEOMETRY=AS_XY in the layer OGR Creation options. This created point layer 2.
Clicked on point layer 2, then ran Vector -> Geometry Tools -> Export/Add Geometry Columns.
I ran this entire process four times, once with no layer OGR creation options, and once with the
Geometry=AS_XY in the layer OGR creation option. I also varied step 4: once with target CRS 'layer' in step 4, once with CRS 'project' in step 4.
I also added a step 5, Right click on point layer 2, then save as CSV file.
When complete, I right click on point layer 2, click 'Open Attribute Table', and see new XY columns with numbers that are definitely not lat/lons. Also no lat/lons in the CSV file.
