I'm trying to use Global Land Cover Characterization data from the USGS:

http://edc2.usgs.gov/glcc/fao/data_specifications.php

It is in the Interrupted Goode Homolosine projection. As I am working on a continental scale (South America) I need to reproject to WGS84. I've tried using the Goode Homolosine projection (land) in ArcGIS but the resulting raster was offset to the East by around 11km.

I shifted this using the header file of the original .bil file. I need to clip it down to the area of my study site and so used a snap[ raster of existing data (worldclim data). The snap did not work and my GLCC raster is still warped and does not line up with underlying rasters.
