I have a point data set that is recorded close to Ottawa in Canada. I am going to use it in some training and for the training purposes, I would like to move the data set to a place a bit east of Cape Town in South Africa, i.e I want to move the data approximately 90 degrees eastwards and 80 degrees southwards.
Is there any way to do this in QGIS (I don't mind running a Python script in the console) or do I have to write a Python script to parse the file I initially imported into QGIS?
The data are presently used in QGIS as WGS84 UTM 18N, but I have no problem reprojecting it to WGS84 lat/lon if that makes things easier.
(I know moving the dataset to another latitude will change the shape of it, it may be that I need to be a bit more careful with the CRSs like - moving it to the southern hemisphere in the same UTM zone, then move it eastwards by manipulating UTM zones and adjusting the easting values, but for a first attempt I am pretty sure lat=lat-80, lon=lon+90 would be good enough for what I need it for)
