Fixed! - but this required a bit of luck. I was able to deduce what projection the shapefiles were actually in (The .prj file was incorrect). I then replaced the .prj file above with a .prj file from a correctly projected shapefile and I was able to get everything back to normal. Thanks for the help, Adam's comment gave me a clue.

Converting one State Plane to the adjacent system is always on the safe side, unless you need sub-meter accuracy. Alternatively, you can use EPSG:102004 USA_Contiguous_Lambert_Conformal_Conic +proj=lcc +lat_1=33 +lat_2=45 +lat_0=39 +lon_0=-96 +x_0=0 +y_0=0 +datum=NAD83 +units=m +no_defs which is valid for the most of the United States.

Since You have ArcGIS, You could make a mosaic dataset with the rasters, and use the mosaic dataset as input to FME. This solution works well for me with large datasets. Ed: ArcGIS has the ability to reproject the mosaic dataset on fly. That means that You have the option of choosing if the reprojection should be done by ArcGIS or FME. With a large ...

Can't add image to comment, so I'll add here how I were able to succeed with Jochen Schwarzes help. I tested this with 11 rasters, which went through fine. The result of this reprojection in Arcmap looks good.

Agree to the comment of @FelixIP, one possible solution is to first create a whole raster using RasterMosaicker transformer, then reproject and re-tile the Raster with RasterTiler transformer. This can be a ressource consuming approach, if you have many input tiles. Another approach is to apply nodata values with the RasterBandNodataSetter (Value = 0) or ...

About three months ago LAStools was updated to provide support for most EPSG codes to offer more ways to re-project with las2las. However, there are still two limitations: (1) the re-projection must use the same datum and (2) some of less common projections such as Hotine Oblique Mercator used by RSO Malaysia are not (yet) implemented. For those cases ...

Welcome to GIS SE! No worries here, you've got a shapefile whose coordinates subscribe to a State Plane Coordinate System, recorded in feet. The minimum bounding geometry coordinate you've retrieved can be thought of as the bottom-left bounding geometry corner relative to sort of an arbitrarily placed origin point on an XY plane. So, instead of 0,0, you ...

These are not strange coordinates. San Francisco's coordinate reference system is EPSG 2227 which is what is described by your .prj file. EPSG 2227 is in feet and not meters. To get UTM coordinates, you need to reproject to from EPSG2227 to UTM using something like QGIS, ARCGIS, or GDAL.

You have to change projection when saving the file to another format (TAB to Shapefile). Right-click the tab file -> go to save as, the following window will appear: In the red box, select the target projection here, then save the file to shapefile. If the output shapfile did not give you the desired results with a correct location, this means that the ...

When you say "I tried to use another geometry server, but the problem is obviously not there", do you mean it works with other GeometryServices but not the one hosted on tasks.arcgisonline.com? Either way, https://tasks.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/Geometry/GeometryServer is an old server (10.0) that you probably shouldn't be using. The sample you ...

The problem was with the res-parameter. I had to calculate the scales based on the GetCapabilities. Here is a good guide how to do it properly https://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/mapproxy/2013-August/001674.html

The figure below may help answer your question. I would create a new file geodatabase, with your desired schema, and would set the output from Project tools to be saved there. If you need your final database to be an SDE, then maybe you can use one of your original SDEs to store your new, projected data.

http://www.bev.gv.at/portal/page?_pageid=713,1572954&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL notes that the Austrian DEM is in MGI Lambert projection. https://www.data.gv.at/katalog/dataset/b5de6975-417b-4320-afdb-eb2a9e2a1dbf provdies the data in a 3 GB large Geotif file. This should be correctly georeferenced to EPSG:31287, and is free of charge. Some ...

Your grid currently lacks projection information. Hence the line Coordinate System is '' in the output. With proper projection information, the output would start (for example) like: Coordinate System is: PROJCS["UTM Zone 4, Northern Hemisphere", ... It is important to understand the difference between assigning a projection and reprojecting. Using the ...

The ogr2gui app seems to read from data\gcs.csv for the Projection drop down dialog. You can edit that file, only including the common SR for the US. When I renamed data/pcs.csv to data\gcs.csv, all the UTM zones where presented in the drop down. Edit: You can either rename the pcs.csv file into gcs.csv for getting a full list of projections or you can ...

What version of QGIS, first? I'm using 2.8, and I loaded a layer that has a proper projection/coordinate reference system (CRS). My project is now using that CRS (in my case, MGA Zone 55, 28355). I can tell that by looking in the lower right corner of the QGIS window, or going to project properties. If I choose 'Vector' -> 'Research Tools' -> 'Vector ...
