Shapefiles and WEAP Good day to you all

I was wondering if anybody has had any issues with introducing shapefiles from Arc into WEAP? I have struggled for a fair while, and although I can visualise the preview when I add the vector layer I cant find it in my schematic at all. It's a long shot but perhaps someone can help me out?

Thanks,

Marco

Re: Shapefiles and WEAP Jack Sieber jsieber <a href="mailto:jack.sieber@sei-us.org">jack.sieber@sei-us.org</a>My guess is that the shapefile you added has a different "projection" from other layers already loaded. WEAP is not able to re-project the layers, so all your layers need to have the same projection.

The layers in a new, blank WEAP area--Countries and River--are both "unprojected," WGS1984.

If you want to use your layers from another projection, add one of them, then remove the Countries and Rivers layers (and any others from a different projection), then go to Set Area Boundaries and find the layer you added and set the area boundary to include it.

I had the this problem and removing the Countries layer solved it. Thanks.
