Hello list,

I have some data in a shapefile and the shapefile came with a .prj file. Will mapserver automatically read that .prj file or will I have to specify a PROJECTION in my .map file? If I have to specify something in my .map file, what is the format? Here is the contents of my .prj file:

GEOGCS["North_American_Datum_1927",DATUM["D_North_American_1927",SPHEROID["Clarke - 1866",6378206.4,294.9786982139006]],PRIMEM["Greenwich",0],UNIT["Degree",0.017453292519943295]]
