This video is the fifth in a series of helpful hints and handy tips for biologists who want to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in their research. It provides a brief introduction on how to transform the projection/coordinate system of a data layer using QGIS.

One of the most common problems that people encounter when using GIS is when an individual data layer is not in the same projection/coordinate system as either the GIS project itself, or other data layers in the GIS project. This means that once you have set your projection/coordinate system for your GIS project (see video tip #4) and added a data layer to your GIS project (see video tip #5), you may need to transform it into a different projection/coordinate system, and more specifically into the same projection/coordinate system as your GIS project. This video takes you through all the steps that you need to follow in order to do this.

This video is presented by Dr Colin D. MacLeod, author of 'GIS For Biologists: A Practical Introduction For Undergraduates', and is brought to you by GIS In Ecology (www.GISinEcology.com), the world leader in providing GIS training for biologists by biologists.
