Hi everyone,

I'm currently mapping parcels within Nebraska, but their GIS platform did not have a quarter section shapefile. Therefore, I need to calculate the center of each square section. I attempted to do this through the calculate geometry option in the attribute table by creating an X and Y field, and selecting "Centroid X Coordinate" and "Centroid Y Coordinate" respectively. I then exported the table and tried to add it to my map using the Display XY Data. However, I get these warnings and nothing shows up:

Can anyone tell me why the points aren't showing up? I also attached a screenshot of the attribute table in case that's helpful.

Thanks so much!

The X and Y values are in a projected coordinate system, not a geographic one (GCS).

Specify the appropriate projected coordinate system.

Perhaps you could just use Feature To Point tool to get the centroid points directly.
