Coordintate transformations

Post by pinobar » Thu May 04, 2006 5:59 am

I've been trying to convert MTM Zone 10 NAD 1927, 1974 adjustment to UTM zone 17 NAD 1927, 1974 test it, i enter one coordinate, pull down the "transform database", choose my datums, choose my point and i get an "Error performing coordinate conversion" and the coordinate goes to 0,0. Any thoughts? Thanx!

When I tried to locate the datums you mentioned, I was not able to find them. Can you tell me exactly what item from the menu that you picked for the Coordinate Group and the Coordinate System - for both the Current Datum and Transformed Datum.

Also - do you have a few coordinates that are in the Current Datum, that you can give me, so I can test the transformation?
