I'm working on exporting projects from QGIS to QField for data collection. I have read the documentation that requires the CRS to be the same for the layers and the overall project. The project is in WGS84-EPSG:4326 as are my layers. The basemaps are in EPSG:3857 - WGS 84 / Pseudo-Mercator. If I change this in the Layer Properties for the base map my project ends up in the ocean off the coast of Africa. If I change the Project CRS to EPSG:3857 - WGS 84 / Pseudo-Mercator, the layers end up in some unknown place.
How can I do this?
I usually work in GA83-WF (USA-Georgia-West) in AutoCAD Map3D and then move in and out of QGIS.
- Add your data and basemap and adjust symbology. See the Resources section of this document for QGIS tutorials. a. PLEASE NOTE: You will want to make sure your data layers are saved with the same CRS as your project in order for them to show up properly in QField. If you want to use a basemap, it is best to set your project CRS to EPSG: 3857 (WGS 84/Pseudo-Mercator) since popular basemaps you can access through QuickMapServices in QGIS use this CRS.
