[Property] (P)ΒΆ

Description: Shows the property dialog of the current project. Figure 40 shows an example of the [Project Property] dialog.

You can specify the coordinate system and offset from this dialog.

When you click on [Edit] button next to [Coordinate System], the dialog in Figure 41 appears, and you can choose the coordinate system for your geographic data and grid.

When you click on [Edit] button next to [Coordinate Offset], the dialog in Figure 42 appears, and you can input the offset for the coordinates.

When you want to use geographic data and grids very far from the origin point of the coordinate system (for example, using UTM coordinate System and handles geographic data far from equator), inputting offset will reduce the truncation error. In such cases, please input the x and y for some point near to your geographic data (or grid).
