You are here: Coordinate Systems > CommonLocalReprojector


Reprojects a set of features to a local coordinate system with units of meters centered on the bounding box of the features.

This transformer is useful if you need a number of features reprojected into the same local coordinate system.




Usage Notes

Local coordinate systems have the following limitation:

  • Height is not considered so areas or distances are best preserved for geometry at an ellipsoid height of 0 meters. Despite height not affecting the coordinate system that will be generated, Z values may undergo a unit shift or geocentric to ellipsoid height conversion if a Vertical Handling mode of Heights are relative to the ellipsoid or geocentric is chosen.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
