I have downloaded a SST image of the United Kingdom. It is in PNG format with no coordinate system.
I know the dimensions of my image and its lat/long range. However, i'm not sure what approach to take in Arcmap to set the co-ordinate system.
There is a web-page describing how to convert image co-ordinates to latitude/longitude but it is beyond my scope link
The image is apparently produced in Mercator projection
Note, this will need to be carried out on multiple rasters, so a automated/batch approach, which isn't interactive or manual, is required
1. is there anyway to automatically convert the XY pixel co-ordinates to lat and long, by knowing the lat/long range of the image and the dimensions?
2. If not, how would one do this calculation to convert image XY co-ordinates to lat/long in Arcmap / Python?
