As I am preparing to gathering a lot of shapefiles that I am going to have to export them to my geodatabase. The Geodatabase will have it's NAD_1983_UTM_Zone_13N (26913).
I have a lot of them that are in GCS_WGS_1984 (4326) and some GCS_North_American_1983 (4269).
My question to you all.
Should I project the GCS_WGS_1984 shapefiles to GCS_North_American_1983 first and then re-project it to NAD_1983_UTM_Zone_13N ?
I was thinking it is because the WGS it does not have any coordinate system and so it needs to project to GCS_North_American to get the correct coordinate system ?
Or, should I just go ahead and export them to NAD_1983_UTM_Zone_13N straight to the Geodatabase which it has that projected coordinate system ?
