I have a number of shapefiles that lack the
.prj file. I'm able to upload them to geoserver using the rest api. However, I'm unable to serve them after upload. Which brings me to the question as to whether I need to reproject before uploading to geoserver. If I need to reproject, then which options are available? Thanks all in advance.
I'm using GeoServer 2.1.3.
UPDATE: Layers created from the shapefile lack projection information. When I update the
Declared SRS field, the layers are served without issues.
