The actual coordinates for the points will remain unchanged, but the auxiliary files (*.MSHP and *.PRJ) contain the re-projection parameters. Most true GIS programs will recognize and apply the reprojection via the use of these files. 1. Select FILE >, TABLE >, LOAD to load into Saga the table of depth measurements. You can see from the displayed values that they cannot be latitude or longitude. 3. Select TOOLS >, SHAPES-POINTS >, CONVERT TABLE TO POINTS. Make these choices and click OK to convert the table to a point shape. 4. Here you can see the points displayed on a Saga map. The scale figure below shows that very unexpected units are available. 5. The module has improved the shape with the addition of projection information, but you must capture this in the files. Select the shape, and use SAVE AS to save it. 6. Keep the same location and table name, so now you have these 5 shape files (DBF, MSHP, PRJ, SHP, SHX). The projection information is in the PRJ file. 10. To avoid identification problems, you should rename the new shape to reflect the reprojection, as you see here. The original projection name can be retained for further clarity. 12. But if you map the new point shape it will plot with expected longitude and latitude values for the WGS system, as you see here. The land map is part of World Borders, and we know that it is WGS84. 13. Inspection of the resulting 5 files, indicates that the MSHP and the PRJ files together are needed to plot these data correctly in WGS84 coordinates.
