I have run into a slight problem it would seem. Yesterday I downloaded qgis in the hope that it could convert a .kml overlay of some administrative boundaries from EPSG:3857 (Google maps) to EPSG:27700 (Ordnance Survey).
What I did: I loaded the .kml file into qgis as a vector file and then right click, save as and type in the new Projection I would like as in this photo:
However, when I load the newly created .kml in google earth, it is exactly the same. I also converted both the original and the new .kml file to a .svg using an online tool and compared them. They too were exactly the same.
Am I missing something here?
