We have some GIS data, which was converted from AutoCAD dwg to TAB using mapinfo, then converted to shapefiles as that's what we are required to create. Editing the data fields was done in the shape files using QGis.
Now for some of the files, the coordinate system settings created using MapInfo were wrong, so I tried to solve this by using the 'save as' option on the edited shapefiles from within QGis, setting the correct projection.
For me, all lines up as it should. However, for the one requiring the data (using Esri software) it doesn't.
I think this is due to QGis creating a .qpj file along the .prj file, and QGis knows to look at the qpj but esri software doesn't.
First of all: Could this interpretation be correct?
Second: if it is correct, how do I 'fix' this so it aligns as it should in the Esri software?
