I have a buildings shapefile of Beijing. I know the projection WGS_1984_UTM_Zone_50N WKID: 32650 Authority: EPSG So I would like to create multi distance buffer from a central point but when I do so, buffer of 1 m covers 3x size of the city. I change the projection of the layer when it was uploaded and checked all the settings to match. Tried to reopen the layer but still have the same problem. What am I doing wrong?

Beijing buffer CRS WGS_1984_UTM_Zone_50N

    it looks like a 1 degree buffer (not 1 meter) – JGH May 1 at 11:15
  • Could you maybe elaborate? Im new to qgis. – Julija M May 1 at 14:02
  • Thank you, but that did not work in my Qgis, so colleague did it in ArcGIS and send me the new file. – Julija M May 1 at 14:59
