I have downloaded the Hydro 1k dataset for Africa from the USGS Earth Explorer portal.
Rasters are provided as
.bil files, and according to the Readme are in Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection.
I'm using QGIS (ver. 2.14.3), I would like to reproject these files to EPSG 4326 - WGS84. I can run Raster > Preojections > Warp, setting the Target SRS to WGS84 and it runs without apparent errors. However, when I load the resulting
.tif into another project with some
.shp files that are already in WGS84, they are at completely different scales. The Hydro 1k layers are huge, at a far large scale than the shapefiles.
Can anyone suggest what's going wrong here? Am I making any obvious mistakes? Are there settings I should alter in the Warp tool apart from the Target SRS?
Following up on @IanTurton's comments, there is a projection file with some information I think is relevant. I'm not sure how to use this information correctly though;
PROJCS["US National Atlas Equal Area",GEOGCS["Unspecified datum based upon the Clarke 1866 Authalic Sphere",
