Error

"The loaded .prj file does not contain the TOWGS84 parameter. This may lead to incorrect georeferencement."

Error importing .prj file with the coordinate system.

 

Description

When importing  the coordinate systems from a .prj file in images properties"or GCP Editor you may receive:

"The loaded .prj file does not contain the TOWGS84 parameter. This may lead to incorrect georeferencement." 

 

Cause

The message comes if the coordinate system is not in our database, this is a warning message and not necessarily an error, it means the software could not read properly the syntax from the imported file, if the content of the file is correct, by clicking OK the coordinate system is imported in the project.

 

Solution

1. Click OK, if  the software could recognize the coordinate system, it will appear in the next pop up window Edit coordinate system.
2. Verify that the right new coordinate system appears in the pop up window Edit coordinate system.
3. In the main window, verify that the points representing the images are located correctly in the place where they are suppose to be located.

 
Note: If the software could not recognize the coordinate system, create a new .prj file: 202559979.
