Import shapes - does not handle reprojection?
« on: December 10, 2020, 06:40:54 AM »
Using metashape 1.6.2.

I have a shapefile with lat/lon coordinates, and an agisoft project with orthomosaic in UTM 5N.
When I run "Import Shapes" for a chunk, there is no error, and my shapes are loaded, but they are not within my frame of reference. I am guessing they have never been converted from ll to utm.

If I already had shapes in a chunk before running "Import Shapes" (which would be in utm 5N), then I get the error "Error: Unsupported datum transformation" (but I can delete my existing shapes and import these then).

Should either handle reprojection internally to match the orthomosaic coordinates, or should throw the error even if I have no previous shapes in my chunk.
