Where to find the Projection files for Coordinate Systems to use for Trimble GPS Pathfinder Office export if you do not have ArcGIS installed? Or, what if you are not using ArcGIS and would still would like to use these projections files to define the projection of your Coordinate System for your SHP file export – then what do you do?
Look no further:
If you are unable to download and save the Projection Files from above then see our website:
Scroll down and on the right underneath the “General Support” column look for below the GPSCorrect and GPS Analyst links and locate and click on the link called ArcGIS 10 Coordinate System Files.
- You can download the projections 1 at a time from Spatial Reference
- Or you can watch this video on how to create the Projection File one at time from an existing SHP file or database for ArcGIS 10.1.
Tip: Remember to define the projection as the same as your coordinate system “Apples to Apples” otherwise your data might end up in another state or continent.
Once you save the folder to your PC you can then Browse to the Projection folder/files you are interested in from within the GPS Pathfinder Office “SHP files Export Properties Coordinate System” tab. Side note: If you are not finding the proper “WGS84″ in the projection folder then try the “Geographic projection” folder.
