I have a pointshape with a lot of points, containing X and Y values projected in krasovsky_1940_albers. I want to transform the projection to WGS1984 and tried to use the Tool "Convert Coordinate Notation" but it only response with the Warning 001293:coordinate conversion failed.
I found a thread with a similar problem (Transforming coordinate system in ArcMap gives Warning 001293?) where FSimardGIS suggests to format my coordinates before the conversion. Since I am very new to arcmap, I don't have any idea how to to such things. Is there a tool or a method to use the field calculator for such things? I would like to it not point by point because it would take to much time. I tried:
[POINT_X].SetFormat( [ + | - | E | W ] <DD.dd> [ + | - | E | W ]).AsString
in field calculator, but it did not work.
Here is a Screenshot of my CCN input:
In addition I tried:
Convert a raster to point (change the reference system), export (and inport) the attribute table of the point shape, then set the coordinate system to WGS1984 under DISPLAY X,Y, Export the Events as layer and inport the new Point shape, and it also shows me that the reference system is WGS1984, but when I calculate the coordinates by calculate field geometry in decimal degree, I only get 0 as an outcome.
How can I do this?
