KB10163 - Define a U.S. State Plane coordinate system for layer reprojection.

All U.S. State Plane coordinate systems are predefined in TatukGIS software products. Therefore, it is just a matter of selecting the State Plane from the drop down list. TatukGIS products support thousands of coordinate systems in this way.

The TatukGIS support for coordinate systems, conversion of map layers between coordinate systems, default behavior, etc., is provided in KB10895. A demonstration is provided in one or more of the Editor video tutorials.

Though normally not necessary, is also possible to manually define or custom edit any coordinate system. For example, the Texas FIPS 4202 U.S. State Plane coordinate system can be manually defined by entering its parameters.
