I am fairly new to GIS, and brand new to ArcGIS Pro (Came from ArcMap) so forgive me if the answer is glaringly obvious. I recently created a visual basic program that generates an image from the Google Static Maps API with a respective ESRI world file (.PGW). Below is an example image with the corresponding world file:
The image is named "staticmap.png" and the world file is "staticmap.pgw", they are both saved in the same folder. I first tried assigning the "Mercador Wab Map" projection to the image before loading it in my map. Here are some of the things I've tried so far:
If anyone is able to help me with this issue it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
A poster was able to answer my question here:
Dashton, I can point the error, ArcGIS IS reading your pgw file. Your file points the x1, y1 point (the two last numbers in your pgw file) to -122.8704705, 42.4147755, which is in Web Mercator, near Africa. When it should be pointing to something like -13396443.965, 5568945.439 (coordinates near Oregon).
