I am using pyproj to re-project Canada's Census Tract boundary shapefiles that are currently in "PCS Lambert Conformal Conic" system. I want to convert them to latitude and longitude WGS84 values.
- Is "PCS Lambert Conformal Conic" the same as "Canada Lambert Conformal Conic" system (since I could not find a code for the former)?
- If yes, the code I found for "Canada Lambert Conformal Conic" is ESRI:102002 and for WGS84, it is EPSG:4326.
My coordinates in Lambert system are x1, y1 = (8411012.879999999, 1438599.017145). After reprojection using the above codes, I get (-24.41452149523307, 11.570599554812532) which is definitely not in Canada. I get the same results when I use these codes in pyproj as well as on this website: https://epsg.io/. Since the coordinates are from Halifax, I expected the reprojected coorindates to be something near 44.6488° N, 63.5752° W (Halifax).
What am I doing wrong here?
