I am having difficulties to transform a Shapefile in ArcGIS 10 from ETRS 1989 LAEA to WGS 1984 N33.
I have 2 files:
- in WGS1984 N33, with a grid of 10x10km,
- in ETRS 1989 LAEA, with small 100x100m polygones looking somewhat gridlike.
If I transform the ETRS-Shapefile (on the fly or using the transformation tool in Data Management), it remains skewed and does not align with the WGS1984 file (see picture with green the WGS file and lilac the transformed ETRS-file, where the horizontal lines are not identical)
Properties of the ETRS1989 before transformation:
Projected Coordinate System: ETRS_1989_LAEA Projection: Lambert_Azimuthal_Equal_Area False_Easting: 4321000.00000000 False_Northing: 3210000.00000000 Central_Meridian: 10.00000000 Latitude_Of_Origin: 52.00000000 Linear Unit: Meter Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_ETRS_1989 Datum: D_ETRS_1989 Prime Meridian: Greenwich Angular Unit: Degree
Properties of the WGS-File
Projected Coordinate System: WGS_1984_UTM_Zone_33N Projection: Transverse_Mercator False_Easting: 500000.00000000 False_Northing: 0.00000000 Central_Meridian: 15.00000000 Scale_Factor: 0.99960000 Latitude_Of_Origin: 0.00000000 Linear Unit: Meter Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_WGS_1984 Datum: D_WGS_1984 Prime Meridian: Greenwich Angular Unit: Degree
