Hi,

I received a .txt file that has the following info as coordinates:

0003066475 and 1236027

 

with no frame of reference as to where the decimal is suppose to be or which one is x or y. Any assistance on how this is suppose to be structured would be great. Thanks!

where is it supposed to be from? 

The only this .... 0003066475 .... could be a number is if the decimal were after the first 0

It comes from a export of a data base. The first 3 zeros are for formatting in a proprietary system, so ignore those. Ive tried to input the decimal at the 3/4/5 positions and still came up wrong.

They could be anything from Web Mercator or some other projected coordinate system.

By "where", I meant on the planet, some place, an area etc

Oh sorry, it is around the Boulder area in Colorado.
