I got this .prj file from a local county government in SC to update their parcel information and I am trying to import the shapefile into PostgreSQL and be sure that I have the correct SRID. This file indicates that it uses US feet, and I want to be sure that I am using the correct SRID does anyone know what the correct SRID is? 102733 which is in SC State Plane is supposed to be using the International Ft and not US Ft.

  • Please edit your question and outline where you got the file, what your research has told you, and include any extra information you can that you already know about the data – Midavalo Feb 23 '17 at 19:46

NAD 1983 StatePlane South Carolina FIPS 3900 Feet

102733

http://spatialreference.org/ref/esri/102733/

  • Yeah, this is right. I missed the 3900 part and the differences in the false easting value – HeyOverThere Feb 23 '17 at 19:22
  • but 102733 uses an international ft and not US ft, right? – Matt Feb 23 '17 at 19:28
  • @Matt why do you think international ft? It is defined for the US only. – AndreJ Feb 23 '17 at 19:35
  • 2273 says intl feet, 102733 just says feet – Midavalo Feb 23 '17 at 19:42

    Please note that 102733 is an Esri wkid, not an EPSG one. – mkennedy Feb 23 '17 at 22:13

My (Esri) PCS documentation lists the following:

NAD_1983_StatePlane_South_Carolina_ FIPS_3900 32133 USA - South Carolina
NAD_1983_StatePlane_South_Carolina_ FIPS_3900_Feet 102733 USA - South Carolina
NAD_1983_StatePlane_South_Carolina_ FIPS_3900_Feet_Intl 2273 USA - South Carolina

Note that 2273 mentions International feet and 102733 just mentions feet.
