The .prj file is a file is a file that specifies what projection is used in the coresponding .shp file. It is optional as programs can often guess the projection in the shapefile.

However you can download .prj files for any known projection on SpartialReferrence.org. Download the .prj file, move it to the same directory as the .shp and rename it to [shapefilename].prj when the shapefile is called [shapefilename].shp
