I have really tried to work this out, but to no avail. I have a U.S. states outline shapefile (taken from BASINS in MW4) that has a .PRJ file. BASINS creates another shapefile with the same name (in another folder) that has a different projection (Albers). When I load the two layers in MW4, I get a warning to reproject the second file, and then the two files correspond exactly.
When I follow the same procedure in MW6 (and my own application written using DS) I get a warning that the projections are different and the second one needs to be reprojected. When it does that, the coordinates are way off.
Similarly, in my application I load only the Albers projected file (do not reproject) and as my cursor moves over the map I translate from the projected x,y values to Lat/Long; these computed values are also way off.
Can you please take a look at these files for me?
P.S. This problem occurs with MANY files during reprojection, not just this one.
