dears user,can samebody tell me how to use a shapefile (shp) working whith weap? I tryied many times but it doesn'nt work. I'm using it in a study about water acces in Bukavu, a town located in the eastern DR Congo.
The map incoprorated in weap is not detailled so i need to use a detailled shapefile of Bukavu wich i have.
waiting for reactions please!!
Thx for your help!!

My guess is that the shapefile you added has a different "projection" from other layers already loaded. WEAP is not able to re-project the layers, so all your layers need to have the same projection.

The layers in a new, blank WEAP area--Countries and River--are both "unprojected," WGS1984.

If you want to use your layers from another projection, add one of them, then remove the Countries and Rivers layers (and any others from a different projection), then go to Set Area Boundaries and find the layer you added and set the area boundary to include it.
