Shape file of my study area is not displayed on WEAP Schematic area. My coordinate system is WGS_1984_UTM_Zone_37N. Ethiopia is located at the northern hemisphere. What is the problem? Please give me the solution.

Thank you
Ms. Anne Hereford

Dear Henok,
While you're right that your shapefile needs to be in WGS 1984, it looks like you're using a projected file. Your shapefile projection should simply be WGS84. This is sometimes referred to as unprojected. It's based on lat-long and doesn't use meters as in UTM zones.
For more, try looking at other shapefile questions in the WEAP forum.
