My area lies between E 92.25-92.50 and N 24.50-24.75. When I tried to draw the coordinates on QGIS 3.8 map composer, it showed the co ordinates as E 8.00-E 24.000 and N 0.000-16.000. I used the correct coordinates and projections but the problem still persists. I took "Decimal with suffix" and used "cm" or "mm" as the interval units. But that should not be a problem because the layer and the project are in the same projections. Please show with illustration how to fix this problem. QGIS grid outines are attached.

  • I tried to attach but there is some error with this. Trying to do it again Sep 16 '19 at 9:14
  • Well, your map doesn't show anything, have you made sure you zoomed in on your canvas content?

  • Map does have content, I removed the content as it can not be shown here. It is an ongoing work.The issue is with the grid not with map content. Sep 16 '19 at 9:25
  • Educated guess: You try to force the map grid into a CRS different from your project's CRS.

Disclaimer: I worked with QGIS 3.4, since this is the current LTR.

Anyway, I used your points, which are in EPSG 4326, my project was in the same CRS, I set the grid to it also. The display was only correct, when I chose mapunits for the interval and set it to a fitting low value.

  • Thank you so much for your kind help. I think the error on my part was taking "mm" "cm" in place of map units.Thank you once again for this. Sep 17 '19 at 16:34
  • I tried and it worked well. I was struggling with this issue for the last two weeks. God bless you for this Kind help. Thanks a lot. Sep 17 '19 at 16:47
