> Hi Listers,
> I've been asked o help a school-going daughter of a friend of mine in Doha
> (yes, this is "AfricaList" :-/ )
> She has been given a shapefile without a projection file. The area is Al
> Wakrah, just South of Doha airport.
> The numeric values of the geometry coords are around 560000, 2782000 - the
> second value looked like a distance from the Equator, so I tried UTM 39N
> The scaling seems wrong, and it does not align with the coastline (QND95)
> shapefile I have.
> (I also tried EPSG:27039)
> As you can see, projection-sleuthing is not one of my strengths.
> Can anyone point me in a direction to try and solve this?
> Thanks in advance.
> Kind regards,
