Read Shapefile projection information

May 23, 2012 at 4:29 PM



I am using this library to read shapefiles in my WPF application. Is it possible to get information on what projection system is the shapefile in?

I don't think so, you need to know this in advance.

The projection information resides in the associated *.prj file.
