I have a dataset of traffic monitoring stations in Ohio, and I am trying to locate these stations in Lat/Long.
Here is an example:
This station is located in Franklin county, along Interstate 71.
CTL_BEGIN, per the Ohio Department of Transportation, is the "County True Log" Begin number. I am not sure of the reference point, but I would imagine it is a linear distance along this route from some reference point.
In the geometry field, one can see 7 digit coordinates (-9237663.3157 4859645.310999997). I tried entering these coordinates into a UTM -> Lat/Long converter, with UTM Zone 17, North Hemisphere, but this worked out to somewhere very much not in Ohio.
Here is a link to an admittedly sparse document on Ohio's coordinate systems, which I did not find helpful, but someone else may.
Any ideas how I would go about converting these coordinates, or otherwise locating these stations in Lat/Long, so that I may map them and do distance calculations with other coordinates?
Edit: For those who are operating with a Shape file and Python, if you import your .shp file into Geopandas, and then call .to_crs, you can convert quickly into the coordinate system of your choice. Calling .crs on your Geodataframe will tell you the system your data is using. I should have called that and I would have had my answer!
