Transform a DWG File to a Different Coordinate System

You can transform the coordinate system for drawing objects by adding them to a map that uses a different coordinate system.

Open or create a drawing using a map template

Choose the target coordinate system for the source drawing

Attach the drawing whose coordinate system you want to change

Specify the current coordinate system for the drawing

Bring in the objects you want from the attached drawing

Right-click the drawing in Map Explorer and click Detach

The drawing objects you brought in use the new coordinate system, but the original drawing is unchanged.
