Thank you for the response.
The information can be downloaded, including in an ESRI prj file, however upon import (into 10.5.1) it will say failed to get coordinate system, file is corrupt. There is no geostationary projection name/type that I can find when manually creating it a projection in Arcgis, and it does not seem to recognize it.
Spatial oblique Mercator is only available in ArcInfo Workstation. So far it hasn't been ported to the projection engine, which would make it available in Desktop/Server/Pro/etc.
levnagdimunov0 Unfortunately, we do not yet support the geostationary satellite view projection. It's actually been a few years since anyone asked for it or even the space oblique Mercator.
Given ArcInfo Workstation has been completely retired for 18+ months, why still include it in the documentation online for 10.3+? Sure, there is a note toward the bottom of the page, but it seems a bit odd to just leave it around as documentation cruft.
What about The_World_From_Space, WKID 102038?
Very good point. Of course, the release after I take it out, our projections developer will decide to implement it, and I'll have to put it in again!
re: ArcView GIS's "world from space". We very, very rarely get rid of anything out of the projection engine.
