I am currently preparing raster layers in QGIS to be fed into MaxEnt to run a species distribution model.
I downloaded climatic variables in ascii format from I downloaded from Adaptwest (https://adaptwest.databasin.org/pages/adaptwest-climatena) with the following parameters:
Projection LAMBERT Datum WGS84 Spheroid WGS84 Units METERS Zunits NO Xshift 0.0 Yshift 0.0 Parameters 49 0 0.0 /* 1st standard parallel 77 0 0.0 /* 2nd standard parallel -95 0 0.0 /* central meridian 0 0 0.0 /* latitude of projection's origin 0.0 /* false easting (meters) 0.0 /* false northing (meters)
I will need to crop this raster with states boundaries shape files in CSR WSG 84 but I am unable to successfully re-project the ASCII files so that they overlap with the states shape files.
I tried a solution posted in this Q&A site in which I created a CSR using the above parameters:
+proj=lcc +lat_1=49 +lat_2=77 +lat_0= 0 +lon_0=-95 +x_0=0 +y_0=0 +datum=WGS84 +units=m +no_defs
but I am still unable to re-project. I get no error messages but the outcome is wrong.
Any idea what am I doing wrong?
