I am very new to GIS. I have been trying to load a gdb file into QGIS, but one of the layers appears completely different from the description in the metadata. The data can be downloaded here. https://pubs.er.usgs.gov/publication/ofr20181088
The layer that doesn't work for me is called "Recent_2013_2017_Mining_Activity_Dataset". It's supposed to contain loads of points where mining activities take place in the Central African Republic, but the layer I get in QGIS is a grid consisting of tiny squares covering the whole country.
Would anyone mind having a look at this for me?
I really don't know what is causing this.
