I have a set of shapefiles that are in what I have always been told are
"unprojected longitude & latitude."
X & Y coordinates are in decimal degrees ( -92.5173861 x 42. 9431848) with
a datum of WGS84
I am trying to use shpproj to convert these files to UTM Zone data (Zone 15,
in my example) for some further analysis.
The following don't work:
shpproj jack jackson-soils-UTM -i=geographic -o="proj=utm zone=15 units=m"
shpproj jack jackson-soils-UTM -o="proj=utm zone=15 units=m"
The processis aborted with the note, "unable to process projection, exiting"
I suspect that some data files may be missing, but I have no way of figuring
BTW, the "proj" directive "works" but doesn't give me any good clues
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
