I want to rotate my North oriented point shapefile to 45%, is there any way to rotate it QGIS or MapInfo?
In QGis you need to use the Affine Plugin (plugins->Fetch Python Plugin) or you could do it using PostGIS.
Have a look at this thread for further description on correct usage.
In MapInfo Professional you can rotate selected objects by any angel around a specific coordinate.
- Make the alyer editable
- Select the objects you want to rotate
- Select Objects > Rotate and enter the angle and a coordinate you want to rotate the data around
- Hit OK
If you data currently is stored in a shape file, you need to save it into a tab file to be able to edit it.
