Projection Dialogs

From XMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are two main projection dialogs used in SMS, GMS, and WMS: The Display Projection dialog, and the Object Projection dialog. From each of these, the Select Projection dialog can be accessed. More detailed information about each projection and the information in these dialogs can be found in the Projections article.

Display Projection Dialog

Example of the Display Projection dialog.

The Display Projection dialog contains settings which are applied to the project as a whole.

Horizontal section

The Horizontal section of the dialog has two options available via radio buttons:

  • No projection – This option doesn't set a projection, and only allows adjusting the horizontal Units used in the project. The available units include:
  • "U. S. Survey Feet". Equal to 12003937 meters, approximately 0.3048006096 meters.
  • "International Feet". Equal to 0.3048 meters.
  • "Meters". Equal to the distance traveled by light in vacuum within 1299792458 of a second.
  • "Inches". Equal to 139.37 of a meter.
  • "Centimeters". Equal to 1100 of a meter.
  • Global projection – Clicking on the Set Projection button allows more specific projections to be set. These are listed below in the Select Projection Dialog section.

Vertical section

The Vertical section has two drop-down boxes:

  • Projection, giving the following options:
  • "Local"
  • Units, giving the following options:
    • "U. S. Survey Feet"
    • "International Feet"
    • "Meters"
    • "Inches"
    • "Centimeters"

Object Projection Dialog

The Object Projection dialog is the same as the Display Projection dialog, but only applies to one specific object (e.g., a coverage or a mesh). It can be accessed by selecting the object in the Project Explorer, then right-clicking on it and selecting Projection... from the menu.

Select Projection Dialog

The Select Projection dialog.

The Select Projection dialog is accessed through the Set Projection... button in either the Display Projection dialog or the Object Projection dialog. It allows setting global projections for the project or for a specific object. It contains a single Projection tab with several options and sections.

All lists of drop-down selections are given in the order in which they appear in the drop-down.

Projection and Zone

There are many options available from the Projection drop-down:

List of Projections  
The Projection drop-down contains the following options. If there is Zone information for a particular projection, the zones will be listed directly beneath the projection as an indented list.

Create New Datum Dialog

The Create New Datum dialog which appears when the Add Datum... button is clicked in the Select Projection dialog.

The Create New Datum dialog (right) allows for the creation of a new datum if the available datums (the list above) do not cover the needs of the project. There are a number of different fields and options in this dialog. These are detailed below:

  • Datum Name: Enter the desired name for the new datum.
  • Abbreviation (Optional): An optional field for a shortened version of the Datum Name.
  • Prime Meridian (Degrees): Enter the prime meridian.
  • Ellipsoid (Spheroid) Selection: This section consists of a drop-down list and two buttons:
  • Add Ellipsoid...: This button brings up the Custom Ellipsoid Setup dialog. It has the following fields:
  • Ellipsoid Name: Enter the desired name of the ellipsoid.
  • Semi-Major Axis (meters): Enter the length of the semi-major axis.
  • The two radio button options are:
  • Use Semi-Minor Axis of: Enter the length of the the semi-minor axis.

  • Datum Transformation Method: This section consists of four radio button options:
  • 3-parameter (Molodensky) Transformation: Uses the Molodensky transformation method.
  • 7-parameter (Bursa-Wolfe) Transformation (Position Vector Rotation): Uses seven parameters: "three translations, three rotations, and a scale correction factor".
  • 7-parameter (Bursa-Wolfe) Transformation (Coordinate Frame Rotation): Variation of the above.
  • Custom Shift Based on Control Point File: Selecting this options brings up an Open dialog which allows choosing a Control Point File with the necessary data to set the datum transformation method. This file is a text file with entries (one per line) in the following format:

deg_longitude_in_new_datum,deg_latitude_in_new_datum,deg_longitude_in_WGS84,deg_latitude_in_WGS84

  • Shifts to WGS84 (meters): This section allows the X Shift, Y Shift, and Z Shift to be manually set for the new datum.
  • Rotation to WGS84: This section allows setting the X, Y, and Z in for the new datum by selecting from the Units drop-down:
  • Scale Correction to WGS84 (parts per million): This section allows setting the Scale (ppm) for the new datum.

Planar Units

The planar unit is simply the measuring format used in the projection. Select the appropriate one from the list.
