I have a data file exported from an ARCGIS system (parcel data from local government). Its a zip file containing 7 files: f.dbf, f.prj, f.sbn, f.sbx, f.shp, f.shp.xml, f.shx.
I have a simple ruby script that uses the rgeo and rgeo/shapefile gem to read the .shp file and extract points. The points don't look like lat, long eg.
I would like to convert the points to lat longs that I can upload to google maps or similar.
I think the solution involves reading the .prj and .shp file, then telling the tool to project into EPSG:3867.
Is there a simple script or commandline tool that handles conversions like this. eg:
convert f.shp f.prj -EPSG:3857 > new.shp
I would prefer to use a ruby / rgeo solution. But anything unixy that can be scripted would work.
