shape files not loading correctly in WWT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to add some shapefiles I've created in ArcGIS 10 to WWT however they are not being projecting correctly.  They show up in WWT as a mess of white lines across the earth.  Could this be a coordination projection problem?  My files are in WGS 1984.  Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is throwing a major wrench in my big visualization plans!

    Thank you!

  • Solved the problem- it was a coordinate system error on my part- whoops.  Good for the user to always double and triple check that their layer is in the right WGS 1984 projection, especially if you set it using ArcGIS as there are a couple of options!

  • There are a wide number of "Flat map" projections that shape files can be in, we only support all earth WGS 1984 lat/lng and Polar stereographic projections for shape files.

    We probably should document this more prominently.

    Thanks for posting.
