Hello,

Is it possible to convert the x an y coords from webmercator to lambert_72 (31370)?

Kind regards,

Serge

You should not use toFixed! You should just pass in the actual values to get the correct results.

``````longitude: pt.latitude.toFixed(5),
latitude: pt.longitude.toFixed(5)‍‍``````

To go from one coordinate system to another

Thank you for the link Dan. I am trying to comprehend it

I have made a small sample which shows me the current coords in WGS84 format (lon/lat). I want them to show me the Lambert_72 coords but I get it to work.

On every move of the mouse I do this

var outSpatialReference = new SpatialReference({
wkid: 31370 //lambert
});
var wgsPoints = new Point({
longitude: pt.latitude.toFixed(5),
latitude: pt.longitude.toFixed(5)
})
var projectedPoints = projection.project(wgsPoints, outSpatialReference);

I create an outSpatialReference where I use the wkid for lambert. Then I get the point where the mousecursor is and put it in the projection with the function .project() --> Projects a geometry or an array of geometries to the specified output spatial reference.

However I am not really sure about the result being correct since I get coords that don't seem te be correct.

Could anyone see if the code is correct or if I am missing something?

sigh...Correct. Thanks Undral..now it works like a charm..

I used the .toFixed with a copy/paste of the sample code but read over it.
