You are here: Coordinate Systems > ReprojectLengthCalculator


Converts a given distance from one coordinate system to another. The transformer calculates the reprojected length of a line starting at the first coordinate in the feature, with the given length and angle. Both the length and angle parameters are specified in the source coordinate system.

This transformer is useful for converting data such as text heights and widths that are measured in many systems in the destination coordinate system units.


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.
