I am using ArcMap 10.6.1. I am working in the North American 1983 Datum with the USA_Contiguous_Albers_Equal_Area_Conic projection. I cannot line up an xy event layer which I created with the GCS along with the polygon layer. I have attached a picture for reference. Both files are using the same GCS and projection. Steps I have taken:
Created the xy event layer in the same data frame with just the GCS and then projected it.
Created the xy event layer in a separate data frame with GCS and projection not set. Defined the projection and projected it. Added it to the map.
Adjusting the GCS and projection of the dataframe.
Adjusting the regional layer's GCS and projection.
Any help or advice that you can offer would be much appreciated. I have read a lot of similar threads and I do not know how to move forward with this.
Order of operations can make a big difference with event layers, so I'm wondering if something is just going awry in the process. Can we try this?
Does the data line up? Fingers crossed!
Thank you for your input. Your response and your previous response gave me an idea that I may have messed up the data and not just how I'm, inputting it. I refreshed it and was able to map it like so:
Which is nearly correct. I still have a minor mapping problem as some of the towns are actually in the bodies of water instead of on land:
Is there any advice you could offer towards minute adjustments that would fix this? Thank you for your time!
