I have number of City locations which collected from Google Earth. They are in WGS coordinate system. I need to convert them into UTM coordinate system,separably. Is there any procedure to find respective UTM zone for each city/ place in ArcGIS?
1 .Navigate to the following location using catalog window / ArcCatalog
C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\Reference Systems
2. In a new arcmap session add "utm.shp" from the above location
3. Add your location layer ( which is in WGS)
4. Use Identify tool and click on the city
5. You will find zone in the identify window
To reproject the data from WGS to UTM you can use Project tool (Data management).
ArcGIS Help (10.2, 10.2.1, and 10.2.2)
Hope this is helpful
Thank you very much for your reply
I want to find out respective UTM zone for each cities..?
Thank you very much Kishor Ghatage..It is very helpful for my work
Just a picky terminology issue....
You can't actually have your data IN WGS84. Because WGS84, by itself, is not a coordinate system.
It is a datum & ellipsoid (& a geoid).
You can have it IN GCS_WGS84 (geographic, based ON the WGS84 datum / ellipsoid).
Then project it to a projected UTM zone based on the WGS84 datum.
Thank you for explanation
An algorithmic way to determine the UTM zone is here and reproduced below. I originally cribbed it from Chuck Gantz.
ZoneNumber = floor((LongTemp + 180)/6) + 1;if( Lat >= 56.0 && Lat < 64.0 && LongTemp >= 3.0 && LongTemp < 12.0 ) ZoneNumber = 32;endif// Special zones for Svalbardif( Lat >= 72.0 && Lat < 84.0 ) if ( LongTemp >= 0.0 && LongTemp < 9.0 ) ZoneNumber = 31; elseif( LongTemp >= 9.0 && LongTemp < 21.0 ) ZoneNumber = 33; elseif(LongTemp >= 21.0 && LongTemp < 33.0 ) ZoneNumber = 35; elseif(LongTemp >= 33.0 && LongTemp < 42.0 ) ZoneNumber = 37; endif endif
(I'm sure there are similar posts on GeoNet, but this is the first one returned by Google.)
