I've been sent an ESRI coordinate system file (.prj) that looks like this:


When I try to use this definition in proj4 using ogr tools, I get this error:

ERROR 6: No translation for Local to PROJ.4 format is known.

Is there a way to use this projection information with proj4?  ESRI ArcMap
seems to be to translate from these coordinates to lat-long WGS84.
