I have downloaded a kml file from Google containing location of shops. The coordinates in that file are in lat/long. I have other shp files containing roads and territories.
I am trying to have all those files in the same projection and since I need to work with buffers and distances, I figured NAD27 (EPSG: 26718) or WGS84 (EPSG:4326) were good choices (units in meters).
However, using QGis, I have tried to reproject the kml file with no success. Even though I can see that they have the same CSR in the metadatas, the kml file do not overlap with the other two shp files. For example, with NAD27 Zone 18 N set as the CSR, the kml file coordinates range from xMin,yMin 362234.57,45.4667 : xMax,yMax 362234.77,45.5717 while the shp file range from xMin,yMin 3271320.50,5039271.30 : xMax,yMax 305262.50,5064239.70.
Sooo would anyone give me a much needed helping hand?
