I have .shp files from the State of Michigan that show an unknown projection when importing or connecting with Map. The projection details line up with MI83-OB, so I have been overriding with this selection. Does anyone know of a way to have Map recognize the .prj file that comes with the State data?

I have a similar issue with .shp files for the USGS DRG coverages (24k/100k/250k). I've ended up converting them into .SDF files and now I don't have to set the CS every time. Although if it's data you use frequently, you can also save the conenction out to a .layer file from display manager.
