Converting CRS When Importing a Map Polygon
When you are importing a map polygon that uses a different CRS from the CRS you have defined for a project, Insight is able to convert it to the project CRS.
Import a map polygon
- In the Control Panel, select the Import menu.
- Click Polygons.
- Select the polygon file(s) to be imported and click Open. The Coordinate Reference System conversion window will be displayed.
Select the type of coordinates
At Type of coordinates, select Eastings / Northings if the polygon is using the eastings/northings coordinates or Latitude / Longitude if it is using the latitude/longitude coordinates.
Convert polygon CRS to project CRS
- Click Convert from to select the eastings/northings or latitude/longitude CRS of the polygon from the standard CRS table and click OK. This is the original polygon CRS which will be converted to the project CRS. The CRS of the project is defined when you create a project (see Creating a Project).
- Click OK to process the conversion.
Note: If you are importing multiple map polygons at the same time, the CRS will be applied to all the polygons.
