Custom (User Defined) Projection
Mapwel supports hundreds of pre-defined projections and
datums. If you need to use custom projection parameters, please use following approach.
Current version of Mapwel software supports customization of transverse Mercator and Lambert conformal conic projections.
Support for other projections will be added in the future.
- Open Userprj.INI file from your Mapwel > Settings folder in any text editor.
- Edit parameters in either [USER_DEFINED_Transverse_Mercator] or [USER_DEFINED_Lambert_Conformal_Conic]
section, according to the projection method.
Then save the edited file. Please note: change only fields at right side of '=', i.e. the key values. Do not change section and key names.
- When using below window for entering coordinates, check the Projection check box
and select X_User_Defined_Transverse_Mercator or X_User_Defined_Lambert_Conformal_Conic projection.
