I've got a a database of feature classes that were somehow transformed into a custom projection that I don't understand, and there does not seem to be a way to get back out of. The projection data are below. Three questions:
- How did it get this way?
- How can it be made into a standard projection?
- Can you recover a file that was transformed out of this projection?
This is what the projection says:
NAD_1983_StatePlane_Ohio_South_FIPS_3402_Feet Authority: Custom Projection: Mercator_Auxiliary_Sphere False_Easting: 0.0 False_Northing: 0.0 Central_Meridian: 0.0 Standard_Parallel_1: 60.0 Auxiliary_Sphere_Type: 0.0 Linear Unit: Foot_US (0.3048006096012192) Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_WGS_1984 Angular Unit: Degree (0.0174532925199433) Prime Meridian: Greenwich (0.0) Datum: D_WGS_1984 Spheroid: WGS_1984 Semimajor Axis: 6378137.0 Semiminor Axis: 6356752.314245179 Inverse Flattening: 298.257223563
What the heck is this?
