I´ve got a problem with displaying the imported gpx file. The gpx file is created in Holux Funtrek 130 PRo. The map I use is from Openstreetmap, I am sure it is the right map from the location I recorded the gpx file. Everything works fine...except the gpx file doesn´t show up. The layer icon is ticked in the layer(s) box. WGS 1984 is set up, both on my gps device and in QGIS. I study geoinformatics, and am really interested in how these things work..but nothing like this has been taught yet..we´ve learnt only adding scalebar and all these elementary tasks. I´d be glad if there was anyone who could answer this question. Thank you.
Right click on your layer of interest and choose Zoom to Layer Extent
I guess you are using the Openlayers plugin to see a Openstreetmap. In that case, your project layer should be in
EPSG:3857. Check the layer properties of the GPX layer by rightclick
-> Set CRS for layer, if it is really set to
Both layers must have different CRS to see them aligned.
