Import DOT data with "custom" units in PRJ file

I've been unable to import DOT shapefile data that uses a Lambert Conformal Conic projection with "custom" units - which appear to me to be millifoot (0.0003048). I can't import the PRJ file with units of "custom" and there's no millifoot option for the planar units. I can't be the first person to ever deal with this, so what am I missing?

    Correction: I can import that data, but it isn't scaled correctly (due to the projection units not being understood by GM). I need to change its projection to geographic with WGS84 and export it. When I do that, the data isn't scaled correctly.

    Hi LanceM, That certainly is an interesting situation. Would you be able to send us in a sample of the data to work with? You can post it on the forum or email it to geohelp@bluemarblegeo.com.

    Thanks!

    Okay. Thanks for the response. I must be the first person to deal with this. I'll provide the data shortly.

    Sample vector data is too large to put on the forum. I have emailed it.
