Last Published: April 25, 2020


The PROJECTDEFINE function doesn't work on grid stacks.


The PROJECTDEFINE function, like all projection commands, does not work with stacks.

Solution or Workaround

The projection of a stack is taken from the first added grid that has a defined projection.

  1. Create a new stack.
  2. Make sure the first grid you add has the intended projection.
