Project

Project tool icon The Project tool projects input data to a specified spatial reference via well-known ID (WKID) or well-known text (WKT).

Examples

  • As a data analyst, you want to change the spatial reference of millions of records of data stored in delimited text files stored in the cloud. Using this tool you can change the spatial reference to a different spatial reference using a well-known ID (WKID) or well-known text (WKT).
  • As a transportation planner, you want to write the output of your analysis in your local state plane coordinate system. To do this, the data can be projected either before or after analysis steps.
  • As a city GIS analyst, you want to change the spatial reference of each record ingested from mobile sensors.

Usage notes

  • When an analytic is configured to write to a Feature Layer output, the output data will always be projected to 4326 for storage (the WKID for World Geodetic System WGS 84).

Parameters

ParameterDescriptionData Type

Input Layer

The point, line, or polygon features to project.

Features

Output Spatial Reference

The spatial reference of the output geometry. You can choose what spatial reference to project your data to using either a well-known ID (WKID) or well-known text (WKT).

String

Output layer

The output layer will have the same schema as the input layer.
