I have GIS data in EPSG:4326 consisting of 2D points, linestrings and polygons that are all close (i.e. less then a couple of hundred of meters) to a certain WGS84 coordinate point.
I would like to convert/reproject the geometry from a WGS84 to a 2D system in which the coordinates are north/south and east/west distance from the reference point in meters. In other words, the reference point should become the origin of a new euclidic SRS and the axis unit should be meters.
How I would I do that in QGIS?
I assumed I would be able to generate a custom SRS with my reference point as a center but I have no idea how to express this in QGIS.
Was I right to assume that I would need to dig into PROJ.4 expressions for that?
Or should I some other tool?
I have the whole osgeo4w toolbox at my disposal.
