TRANSFORMATIONS AND PROJECTIONS

Hello,

 

I am using ArcMap 10.3.

 

I selected the Projections and Transformations under Data Management Tools to change a NAD83 state plane coordinate to the WGS84 coordinate system.  I filled-in the Output coordinate system and then the under the Z Coordinate System tab selected WGS 1984.  Under the Environments tab I selected Z Values "same as input".  I thought ArcMap would have created the new data to a vertical metric unit but the new data still has the US feet value. I noticed a past post states that only ArcMap 10.4 has the vertical projection capability.  If this is the case, what is the "Z Coordinate System" tab for and is it possible to get my vertical elevation values projected from us feet to meters ?
