A poster was able to answer my question here: https://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/316758/arcgis-pro-not-loading-associated-world-file-with-png-raster?noredirect=1#comment515246_316758 Dashton, I can point the error, ArcGIS IS reading your pgw file. Your file points the x1, y1 point (the two last numbers in your pgw file) to -122.8704705, 42.4147755, which is in Web Mercator, near Africa. When it should be pointing to something like -13396443.965, 5568945.439 (coordinates near Oregon).

Hi everyone, I am fairly new to GIS, and brand new to ArcGIS Pro (Came from ArcMap) so forgive me if the answer is glaringly obvious. I recently created a visual basic program that generates an image from the Google Static Maps API with a respective ESRI world file (.PGW). Below is an example image with the corresponding world file: 0.000171661 0 0 -0.00012673 -122.8704705 42.4147755 The image is named "staticmap.png" and the world file is "staticmap.pgw", they are both saved in the same folder. I first tried assigning the "Mercador Wab Map" projection to the image before loading it in my map. Here are some of the things I've tried so far: Loading it in without the world file present, it loads in the Pacific Ocean. Assigning the Mercador Web Map and then loading the image with world file in my map, which results in it appearing outside of Africa (it should be in southern oregon). Deleting all references to the image / world file in ArcGIS Pro and regenerating both, loading into my map without a projection (It loads in the same spot it loaded without a world file present). This step convinced me that the program is ignoring my world file for some reason, maybe I wrote it incorrectly? Tried it in ArcMap with the same results. If anyone is able to help me with this issue it would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
