I have two shape files contains considerably large data. I exported them to my geodatabase(using arccatolog), which takes 2 days. The problem is their srid must be changed. So i tried creating new table from the tables i exported with sde.st_transform method but the query did not end. At the end 5th day i stop the query. In previous versions of the arcgis server i use shp2sde function from linux command line and give the srid parameter directly. But in 10.2 version i could not find such a functionality. So i got only arcmap&arccatolog and SQL options. I need to set srid of this shape files before i exported them. So what can i do?


As you have access to Arcmap or ArcCatalog, Use Project tool to simultaneously project your shape files to another coordinate system and importing them into your enterprise geodatabase!

Sample project tool

  • is that possible to choose output coordinate system with srid instead of name. I am asking because there are 3 coordinate system which has same in spatial references table but ony one of them has the srid i want.
