Contents Notes
Identifying the type of coordinate system for data using ArcMap -- Identifying the correct geographic coordinate system -- Identifying the projected coordinate system -- When standard coordinate systems don't work, working with nonstandard units -- Aligning CAD data, modifying a standard coordinate system -- Aligning rotated CAD data -- Why we need geographic (datum) transformations -- Applying geographic transformations -- "What map projection should I use for my project?" -- Projection files and parameters; adding x, y data; the shape of buffers. This book presents practical techniques on how to identify data projections, create custom projections to align data, and solve common data alignment problems.
