<h4>Coordinate Reference System (CRS) Tab</h4>
</a>
The Coordinate Reference System (CRS) tab allows you to set the projection for the current project and enable on the fly transformation. You do not need to have a saved project to setup and enable 'on the fly' CRS transformation.
<p>To use 'on the fly' CRS transformation, click the <label>Enable 'on the fly' CRS transformation</label> check box. Then choose the projection for the project (map canvas) from the list of Geographic or Projected coordinate systems.
<p>You can find a coordinate system by entering its name, EPSG code or the QGIS ID and clicking the <label>Find</label> button.
<p>The list of recently used coordinate systems will be available on the bottom for quick access.
