So Canada is basically tossing their protection of Humpback Whales in the garbage in order to enable them to put an oil pipeline right through critical habitat territory.
Just in case, y’know, anyone wants to stop talking about moose and maple syrup for a second.

So I had to create a 2kmX2km grid inside the polygon boundary of Ecoregion 135 for a new sampling project. Easy - I’ve made grids in polygons before. No sweat. So I go to make the grid, which I want to run straight N-S, and it ends up like this:
Hm. It’s crooked >_< The fishnet tool was created by a co-worker of mine, and I don’t really understand Python THAT well, so I was just gonna wait until the next day to ask her or my boss. But then, after a night of thinking about it, I realized I should check the projection of the actual boundary shapefile. Every other polygon’s projection, that grids had been straight for, was NAD83 UTM18N in Transverse Mercator. So I checked the tilted grid and BAM, it was Nad83 Lambert Conformal Conic. Heart beating slightly faster with excitement, I opened up the tool to switch projections.
I fixed the projection of the boundary shapefile, then re-ran the fishnet tool, and huzzah, the result:
So if ever you encounter a wonky looking shapefile, be it a line or a polygon, or something doesn’t line up right, make sure the file is in the correct projection!!
