First of all I am new to ArcGis
I was given a shapefile with the information of the bathymetry of a Portuguese river reach. In the same shapefile "package" there was one file with the information of the projection, a *.prj file.
I have loaded the shapefile on ArcGis and I got this information:
Projected Coordinate System: Lisbon_Lisbon_Portuguese_Grid Projection: Transverse_Mercator false_easting: 0,00000000 false_northing: 0,00000000 central_meridian: 1,00000000 scale_factor: 1,00000000 latitude_of_origin: 39,66666667 Linear Unit: Meter
Geographic Coordinate System: GCS_Lisbon (Lisbon) Datum: D_Lisbon Prime Meridian: Lisbon Angular Unit: Degree
This should be correct, but I used "layer to KML" and checked the location of this river in Google Earth, and it was placed on the sea, near Ibiza island. And this is a Portuguese river reach...
So, something is not correct here and I really do not know what can I do to project this river in the correct place... Can someone help me?
I know exactly the location of the river reach on Google Earth!
