I'm trying to change the CRS of a Natural Earth raster file (NE2_HR_LC_SR_W_DR.tif) to an orthographic projection centered near the North pole. Here's the proj string I used:

+proj=ortho +lat_0=80.5 +lon_0=36

But I get this weird result:

Any ideas on how to fix this?

  • Сould you provide a link to download the raster, please. Maybe upload this raster to cloud storage and write a download link here. And what version of QGIS is installed on your computer? It is important for bug reporting.
