I am new to Whitebox GAT.

I found out that the shapefile I created in it does not have projection file.

Did I do something wrong?

  • No, you are doing OK. WhiteBox-GAT works in XY space and does not do much about CRS. (It has Coordinate System Transformation tool, though). Each Map belongs to its own xy-coords, which enables us to work on multiple CRS at the same time. – Kazuhito May 5 '19 at 2:20
  • If you need prj file, go to EPSG.io to find your CRS and download ESRI WKT text file. – Kazuhito May 5 '19 at 2:34
