Hello,

We are using ArcMap 10.1.

We are new to ArcMap and have been trying to open a DEM and NED files downloaded from local websites.  The downloads appear to be *.tif and *tif.aux.xml file formats.  We have tried to open in ArcMap by using "All Supported Map Formats" but do not see these particular files in ArcMap .  Is ArcMap not the correct program to be using or are we missing some step?

I think you're selecting the "open map" (file folder icon) option. That would be used to open an existing map document (.mxd). Look instead for the Add Data button. It's a + sign on a box. Or click File, Add Data. That should let you browse to the TIFF file location and add it to the current map document.

Check out the help document here for more assistance to add the raster files to an mxd.
