I have a shapefile (in red outline bellow) that has the following attribute:
Projected Coordinate System: NAD_1927_StatePlane_Wyoming_East_Central_FIPS_4902 Projection: Transverse_Mercator
But when I export the shapefile to KML/KMZ so I can view it in Google Earth, the polygon does not align to where the shapefile appears in ArcMap. I can tell because in ArcMap the road is inside the polygon and in Google Earth it's clearly outside see images below)
I've read that Google Earth uses WGS 1984 as its projection, so I projected the shapefile to WGS 1984, exported it to KML/KMZ and still the polygon does not fall in the right place (see purple polygon in image 2) - the road is still out side of the polygon. Any thoughts?
