I'm having issues adding a table from Excel into a species occurrences map. It needs a little processing work done so I've exported the data as a shapefile, projected it and set it in the correct coordinate system, but it still appears in a different hemisphere. The format for lat and long columns are "numbers" in Excel, but there must be some other discrepancy or compatibility problem. Any ideas?
