Hello All,

Good Morning,

I have lot of geographic data in shape file format and  we are going to host few data on server 10.1 [and then will publish in Java script API (v 3.0) ] . I recently gone following article regarding projections http://blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2009/11/20/arcgis-online-moving-to-google-bing-tiling-scheme-what-does-this-mean-for-you/ it states that you need to convert your projection to WGS 1984 Web Mercator.

I have already shape files in WGS 84 (degree) format & My question is that Do I need to convert all these shape files to WGS 1984 Web Mercator format ?? ( Because I want to use this data for ArcGIS Server(10.1)  and then in JSAPI  for custom applications)

Any help/suitable methodology is highly appreciated..

Thanks in advance : )
