What I want to do appears simple. However, there seems to be a bug.
I have an image from GE which I want to georeference and set as a background layer. I thus set some placemarks on GE, wrote down the coordinates, created a picture and uploaded it to the georeferencer. I then wanted to put in the coordinates for the placemarks manually, however, they do not fit. In order to see which would be kinf of fitting coordinates, I chose the "from map canvas option" and got totally different coordinates for which I can't make out the unit at all. I have specified WGS 84 everywhere as coordinate system and I also have some other layers on QGIS, which display the correct lat/ long values when asked by the information function.
Do you know what mistake I could have made?
