000985: The spatial reference used to create the spatial weights matrix file does not match that of the input feature class.

Description

The spatial reference associated with the spatial weights matrix file does not match the spatial reference for the input feature class. This could lead to unexpected results. Spatial weights matrix files are tied to the input feature class, the Unique ID field, and the output coordinate system settings used when the .swm file was created.

Solution

To avoid confusion and to ensure accurate results, consider projecting your input feature class to match the output coordinate system settings and re-creating the spatial weights matrix file prior to running your analysis.
