Reprojection with Version 11.1

Recommended Posts

Prior to Version 11.1, reprojection could be accomplished through the "Edit" menu item "Reproject ..". The dialog box had check box for optionally specifying the "Current projection" and for selecting "New projection". This was extremely useful for converting between various projections.

Version 11.1 no longer has these menu items. Version 11.1 has "Reproject All.." under the "Display" menu. It does not let you optionally specify the "Current project". It only lets you specify the Global projection.

This is a reduction of functionality when dealing with various projections. Is there anyway to return to the prior methodology for converting coordinate projections?

Thanks,

Karl

Karl,

Thank you for the feedback. It is still possible to convert between two projections, but the method has changed a bit. Our goal is to expand capabilities and to make working with projections more intuitive. Each object in the project explorer has its own native projection. This projection can be accessed through the right-click menu on the object. The display projection, accessed in the Display menu, controls the projection that all objects will be drawn to in the graphics window. We call this system "project-on-the-fly." This allows the underlying data of each object to remain in its native projection and allow all objects to be drawn to a single unifying projection in the graphics window. When coordinate conversion is needed (converting the native projection to a new projection), this can be performed through the right-click menu of the object and selecting Reproject... The Reproject All command in the Display menu converts the native projection of all objects to a single specified projection.

Tom,

Thanks for your response. The issue appears to be with reprojecting images. For example, open a jpg image of a USGS quad map that has a jpw referencing the image in UTM coordinates. Say I want to reproject to Geographic (Latitude/Longitude). If you right click on the image object, there is only a "Projection.." option. If I set the project to Geographic under this option, nothing happens.

Scatter data has the "Reproject.." option, but Images do not. How can I reproject the image?

Thanks,

Karl
