I am trying to plot pipelines which are expressed as multiple data points. For each data point there is a Northing and Easting which have been projected using the ED50 30N projection.
I need my data to be in WGS84 EPSG:4326. I have loaded a new QGIS with the basemap projection of WGS84. I have then uploaded the data as a
delimited text file. When uploaded, I thought the points were not appearing. However, from closer invesigation they are just being projected far, far off the base map as seen below (bear in mind 'Peterhead' is actually situated within the world map, as seen in the 3rd figure ).
The figure above identifies two seperate pipelines which have been input. However the scale below is 0:1 (Which is as large as QGIS can go).
This figure can show how large the map is, as peterhead is situated within the world map.
Can anyone solve this issue. I have taken the first Easting and Northing idicated within the first figure and tested it within the map. It projects the data to the west coast of scotland seen in the bottom figure (nevertheless this is still wrong as it should be on the east coast of scotland). However, even if my coodinates are wrong my projections shouldnt be as far away as they are. does anyone know why?
I have tried exporting feature and saving it as a new shapefile with the WGS 84 projection, but it still occurs in the same place.
