I've been in the geospatial industry since 2002. I primarily use ArcGIS, MapInfo, and FME. But I'm interested in learning QGIS, GRASS and other open source GIS software. I'm also in the process of honing my Python skills.

comment FME - Filter Parameter choices to only projected coordinate systems
No, it's unlikely that there will be undefined projections. However, it is likely that the input will be in a geographic coordinate system. I need to force a projected coordinate system, hence the input parameter.

comment FME - Filter Parameter choices to only projected coordinate systems
Thanks @blah238, I thought about using a drop down choice. I'm in Australia and there are probably less than 10 to choose from. However, we do some international work sometimes, and I thought it might be useful to allow other PCSs. I recently did some tool validation in ArcGIS and was hoping for something similar. I suppose it is overkill.

comment FME - Filter Parameter choices to only projected coordinate systems
The reprojection does occur in the workflow. However, this is a generic workflow that reprojects a pipeline and all the data that goes with it. I want the projection to be a parameter at the beginning so all other data reprojects to the same projection. I don't want to hard code the projection because different pipelines exist in different areas of the globe.
