I am new with QGIS. I know how to generate the x and y coordinates by using the field calculator ($x, $y). I know these are just static values. What I want to do is to change the coordinates by hand so that the values are actually changed.

Is there an easy way to do this?

  • Welcome to GIS SE! Thank you for having taken the Tour to learn about our focussed Q&A format. What does the abbreviation of RD which is used in your title stand for? – PolyGeo May 15 '18 at 8:11

    @PolyGeo: considering his Dutch-sounding name I suspect he is using "Rijksdriehoek", the local projection used in the Netherlands. Shouldn't matter for the question though. – RemcoGerlich May 15 '18 at 11:30
  1. on the QGIS toolbar, click edit mode-pencil
  2. on the toolbar, activate the edit nodes button
  3. select the point you want to edit with a mouse click
  4. in the Vertex Editor panel, change the coordinates manually, with respect
  • that does the job, thank you very much. Indeed RD stands for our local projection "RijksDriehoek". Did not know if that was usefull. – S.Schut May 16 '18 at 11:38
