The vector reference layer must be loaded into ArcMap before starting this tool.
The output of this tool is a shapefile of the same type as the input shapefile.
There are two components to rotation: a pivot point around which the rotation occurs, and the angle of rotation. The center of rotation
in this tool can either be defined manually, or you can select one of several pre-set options (the center of the extent of the vector layer,
the SW corner, etc). The angle of rotation is specified in degrees and can range from -360 degrees (anticlockwise rotation) to +360 degrees
Shifting simply moves the vector shapes by a constant x and/or y value. Negative values will move shapes west and south for the x and y
axes respectively. Positive values will move shapes east and north for the x and y axes respectively.
Both rotation and shifting
If you are combining rotation and shifting it is important to consider which to apply first, because you will get different results depending on
whether the rotation or the shift occurs first.
