I’m trying to update some GPS point coordinates in an attribute table using QGIS Field Calculator. However, regardless of whether I do it by creating a new field or updating an existing one, I get about 13 decimal places, the last 5 of which are “9” for every feature. (The original points only had 6 decimal places.) I doubt that this is really a coincidence! It happens even if I stipulate a lower Output field width and Precision. My expression is $y, for example, for latitude.
Any idea what’s going on here?
