Inaccurate Data plot

Discussion created by apburn44 on Nov 28, 2013
I am currently trying to plot data from zipped .shp files for a site in London. However all the data while accurate within itslef is plotted 120m to the South east of its true position on the basemapping. I have seen similar problems on the forum, however these are mainly fixed by editing the .shp files in ArcGIS desktop. Is there a way around this issue without access to ArcGIS desktop?
