I am from a computer science background and I would say I have zero experience with GIS software and terminology. Can anyone confirm if I can use QGIS for the following problem:
I used a motion capture system to collect the movements of people in a room.
The system I used has its own coordinate system where the center of the room is (0,0)
The collected data is in the form:
timestamp, id, x, y e.g. 1/27/2018 7:26:17 PM, user1, -1.62, 1.71
Where x and y represent the position with reference to the room center in meters. Look at the sketch:
So as now I have a list of points of the person movement, I want to create a heatmap of that. I used QGIS to import my data and I was able to create a heatmap but I have to zoom in to see a better view. I think this is related to CRS. Can I change the coordinate system to have (0,0) is the center of the view? and the total view box is 10 by 6 meters?
