[Qgis-user] v.transform Tool

This is one of the things I normally do with AutoCAD. The tools in QGIS for this are just not as intuitive:(

Anyways, the first thing I would do, just to test the tool, is to save the file in a local UTM zone or local CRS that is in meters.  Currently, you are epsg 4326 and unit is degrees.  Multiplying degrees by a scale of 1.5 could very well bring you on another planet!

To figure out the tool, you could also draw a 10mx10m square and then use that to figure out what is going on. If you insist on playing with degrees, reduce the scale to something like 1.1 or 1.01 and look at the results.

Good luck!

> I have created a polygon shape file with CRS of EPSG:4326-WGS 84. I ran the v.transform Tool on this polygon by increasing the xscale to 1.5 and yscale to 1.5. I see a polygon generated. But, this is not falling on top of the original polygon. It is falling in completely in a different location i.e beyond the map limits. What should I do to have this fall at the right location?
