Re: [idvusers] Using shape files with Texas state plane projection

All,
I kept the files in their orginal .zip file. (only way to download them).  No 
luck when using as a background or loading as data.  As per Don's suggestion I 
uploaded a zip file to IDV support.

Thanks all,
Roderick

Greetings Roderick,

Can you try putting all of the files into a .zip file and load that into 
the IDV?

Thanks!

Sean
