I am trying to project some point data, which is in a GCS decimal degrees format. I have used the Feature Class to Coverage (Conversion) tool to create a Coverage. Then I'm trying to use the Project Tool to project the coverage, using the following projection file:
input projection geographic units dd datum nad83 parameters output projection utm units meter zone 11 datum nad83 parameters end
The problem is that, well, nothing happens. The tool seems to execute fine, but no output coverage is created.
I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here, so any help would be appreciated.
i don't see anything wrong with the projection file. Can you reproject the coverage data on-the-fly in ArcMap? If nothing shows there, check the input lat/lon values. Do they overlay properly with your other data? Longitude values are negative? Latitude = y, longitude = x?
