To change the coordinate system assigned
to the data you are adding to a map
- In Display Manager,
- In the Data Connect window,
select the appropriate data provider in the Data
Connections By Provider list.
- Navigate to the data store and select
- Click Connect.
- Hold your cursor over the name of the
data store to see a pop-up window that displays its coordinate system,
for example, UTM27-10.
When you add data to
your map, you must specify its original coordinate system. AutoCAD Map 3D automatically
converts the data from that coordinate system to the one specified
for your map.
- Click Edit Coordinate Systems and,
in the Edit Spatial Contexts dialog box,
click the entry.
Select the entry and
click Edit to specify the coordinate
system for the surface
NoteTo copy the spatial
context information to the clipboard (for example, to check against
your records or for use with a Technical Support specialist), right-click
the entry and click Copy Coordinate System.
- Click Edit.
- In the Select Coordinate System dialog box,
select the coordinate system you saw in the pop-up window.
Select the appropriate
category from the pulldown list, and then scroll through the entries
until you find the one you want.
- Click OK twice
to return to the Data Connect window.
