Lab Exercise: Projection Tools

  1. Start ArcCatalog.
  2. Run Project (Data Management) Tool:
    • Input Dataset: DMTI_Roads_Calgary
    • Output Dataset: DMTI_Roads_Calgary_Projected
    • Output Coordinate System: NAD_1983_UTM_Zone_11N
    • Geographic Transformation: WGS_1984_(ITRF00)_To_NAD_1983
  3. Run Define Projection (Data Management) Tool:
    • Input Dataset: DMTI_Roads_Calgary
    • Coordinate System: NAD_1983_UTM_Zone_11N
  4. Open ArcCatalog.
  5. Add DMTI_Roads_Calgary and DMTI_Roads_Calgary_Projected. Compare the layers - one is incorrectly projected.
