Create Coordinate System

Post by zubler » Sat Oct 04, 2008 11:05 am

We are working on a highway project and have created our own TM based ground coordinate system. I have been trying to create the system in Microsuevey. I input all the parameters, then try to save it. I get the following error message. "user defined directory item require: in name". Has anyone come across this? Can someone point me in the direction of a fix. I know our coordinate system works. We have tested it extensively in other software.

When creating your own custom definition - the name of your coordinate system must have the : character as the first character - so if I created one I could call it :GLEN as an example. Be sure to also set the group to User Defined Coordinate Systems before saving the definition.
