I have a .tif raster file which is based on some projected coordinate system (for example: NAD 1983 State Plane California). I would like to export this raster as a .xyz file, but also reprojecting it to a different projected coordinate system before export (for example to: UTM).
Do I have to reproject the initial .tif raster to WGS84 geographic coordinate system first, then reproject it to desired projected coordinate system (UTM), and then export it to .xyz file?
Or can I directly reproject it from one projected coordinate system to another one (UTM) and export it as .xyz file?
Essentially this is what I am would like to ask:
NAD 1983 State Plane California -> WGS84 -> UTM => export to .xyz or NAD 1983 State Plane California -> UTM => export to .xyz
I assume this problem can be applied to a general reprojection from one raster to another (without the need of exporting it to the .xyz file)?
I am using QGIS, but I assume the principle is the same in ArcGIS or other GIS software.
