ArcScripts is intended for the free exchange of scripts and tools related to ESRI software products. Please alert the moderator if this script is a demo, trial-version, or an advertisement for a retail product.
This Python (v2.1) script will add or replace projection information for the all feature classes/shapefiles a user-specified directory based on the projection of a specified feature class/shapefile. This was possible in ArcGIS Desktop 8.3 and ArcView 3.x, but cannot be done out-of-the-box with ArcGIS Desktop 9.0.
The download also includes the BatchDefineProjection script from the Data Management Toolbox on support.esri.com and a custom ArcToolbox containing script tools for both scripts with detailed documentation.
