I've been trying to georeference a raster.The ground control points I choose using 'from map canvas' are quite close to the original points, but the results are far far away and distorted. Could anyone help with it? The screenshots are below: 1. After choosing GCPs and setting up transformation parameters, you can see the red lines indicating the to-be-moved-to positions: enter image description here

  • What are you transformation parameters? I get the best result using the Helmert transformation.

  • I used linear, but I don't think it's the problem. No matter linear or hermert, it should be shifted so far away.

  • I wonder if the georeferencer is dropping decimals. Now all the GCPs seem to be very close to each other, many even at exactly same coordinates. I would try to give the ground control points in some metric coordinates instead of degrees.

  • Use a different CRS.
