I have a raster file with Unknown Coordinate System and a WKT-file that has the CS information. How do it connect those two in ArcGIS Pro? The Define Projection tool gives me an option to create a new coordinate system, but I'm not sure which information in the WKT-file is needed. Thanks!
Thank you Dan! The link you shared was very helpful.
Based on that it seems the WKT-file includes conversion between two coordinate systems. Does this mean the Define Projection -tool should be used with the BASEGEOGCRS and then the Project Raster -tool with the information after CONVERSION?
The text file is attached here below.
You can right-click on the layer and select Properties and look at the extent values .... or
Open a new map, no basemap etc, just add the raster, set the map to display the coordinates of the raster. It will set the coordinate system for the map. scroll around, if the coordinates don't look like decimal degrees (eg small) then the raster was projected to... METHOD["Albers Equal Area",
Thanks Dan! I know where the raster is/should be located (Alaska Albers) but the parameters of the projection in the ArcGIS selection do not match with the parameters in the WKT-file. However, I did try the Define Projection -tool and used Alaska Albers to see what happens, but the raster still opens at the origin of the projection grid (west of the island of Haida Gwaii, about 500 km out at the sea). Does this mean that the raster was created with wrong coordinate information?
Neither Yukon or Alaska works, and even with the new one that I created based on the WKT the raster is still located in the middle of the sea. Is it safe to say now that something is wrong, or am I just not getting something?
