Adding & Georeferencing OS Street View Map Data

Hi there, I am creating a new project in ArcMap and need to use OS Street view map data.

I am using the SO grid tile. However within this there are another 400 files or tiles which breaks down this SO area. It comes as TIFF files but is not georeferenced. Therefore, I have to zoom to layer to see the street view images and hence is not viewable with the rest of my layers in the project. However within the download, as well as the TIFF files, there is a separate georeferencing folder that has a TFW or TAB file for each TIFF tile. I have not dealt with this sort of georeferencing before (Only used adding control points option) and I cant seem to come across an instruction guide for this.

So basically, how can do I georeference this map data so it shows with the rest of my layers? Finally how would I tile the different files?

Best wishes.

Hi Luke,

You need to have the .tfw files inside the same directory as the .tif files on your computer - ArcMap will then take care of the rest.  You can safely delete the .tab files, as they are not used by ArcGIS.
