5.Or you can create a *.prj which is a default projection file for ESRI product. Use your favorite text editor such as notepad or notepad++ to write ESRI WKT format. Copy the ESRI WKT format file below:


Copy and save it as ‘Timbalai 1948 Borneo RSO.prj’ inside the ArcGIS Coordinate Systems directory, in my case it is in “C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Coordinate Systems\Projected Coordinate Systems\National Grids\Malaysia”.
