Project a point from one spatial reference to another.
Being able to project between spatial references is fundamental to a GIS. An example of when you would need to re-project data is if you had data in two different spatial references, but wanted to perform an intersect analysis with the
GeometryEngine.intersect function. This function takes two geometries as parameters, and both geometries must be in the same spatial reference. If they are not, you could first use
GeometryEngine.project to convert the geometries so they match.
How to use the sample
Click anywhere on the map. A callout will display the clicked location's coordinate in the original (basemap's) spatial reference and in the projected spatial reference.
How it works
- Call the static method,
GeometryEngine.Project, passing in the original
SpatialReferenceto which it should be projected.
In cases where the the output spatial reference uses a different geographic coordinate system than that of the input spatial reference, see the GeometryEngine.project method that additionally takes in a DatumTransformation parameter.
