I'm using Arc 10 and want to know how to upload tiles and a dataset (polygons). Anyone still familiar with this!?
Could you give more details preferably with the snapshots of the data?
What platform are you using (ArcMap/Pro/Server/Online)? Where you are trying to upload?
By Tiles, do you mean Cached services in ArcGIS Server/Online or just Raster Data?
And by Dataset, do you mean Feature Dataset containing multiple Feature Classes (stored in a Geodatabase)?
Hi, thanks for your reply - I am trying to upload Ordnance Survey tiles raster data (1;25,000 coverage of part of the UK) on a computer operating on Windows 7. The dataset is polygons created to outline sites (I'm afraid I don't know whether this a feature dataset but presume all the sites together form a geodatabse).
Do you mean you need to add raster data .... The add data button can be used to add all kinds of data
Yes I understand that - it's the process of creating folders I'm more
concerned about - how is it applied?

If you are working with 10.0, you might want to start with ArcGIS Desktop - Raster data organization
It's not clear whether you are trying to create folders in ArcMap, the file GDB, or trying to create a Raster catalog, but the info there might help you clarify what you need.
I've managed to upload the tiles (raster data) and the dataset (polygons
with attributes). However the scale box is disabled and I can't activate
it. The data frame is not set to a fixed extent or scale.

Looks to me like you don't have the rasters georeferenced, that is, it may just see it a lower/left being 0,0 and in inches. You will need to get them to know where they are in the work. Depending on the data itself, it may be in a file that came with the data but with 10.0, maybe it needs to be read in some how.
Look thru that part of the help docs.
Hi, I'm afraid the help doesn't really help me - I don't understand what I
do with it and it looks as if I'd really know how to write my own code to
implement it - and I can't.
What I do know is that the data have is provided as tif and tfw files.
When add the data it is saved it comes up as tif, tfw, xml and ovr files.
But it doesn't seem these are working.
Insert a new empty dataframe don't add any other data.
Click on the Add Data Button (yellow plus)
Navigate to the folder that you unzipped the *.tif file too (all the other parts are needed)
Add just one tif file and nothing else
Does the file load?/show? If not, right-click on the file's name in the table of contents of the map and select zoom to layer Does it show now?
Inserted new dataframe
Added 1 x tif file - it does not appear that I can insert the constituent
parts of the folder (tif tfw aux.xml and ovr) - just the whole file
The following message comes up:
If I press OK the tile has loaded - but of course the scale is not there.
Maybe the tfw files (worldfiles) aren't correctly? You could open them with a editor and have a look what's written there?
You need information about the coordinate system of your raster data.
World file - Wikipedia
an image... in your case, a *.tif ... can have many parts that is why you use the Add data button, it does the figuring out of which bit(s) to use.
1 I just want to ensure that the images are good... ie they load ... so far so good
2 What 'scale' they have depends on whether they have real world coordinates or not...
If the image is just a bunch of pixels without any guidance as to the pixel width and height and some location parameter
(ie top left corner perhaps ... there are other ways
3 If you lack this information, then you have a 'picture' and you will need to get or confirm the information in step 2...
That information may be contained in the *.tfw file or other bits
When you can assemble what you have, report your findings so others can move you forward
If you use this data or similar:
1:250 000 Scale Colour Raster support
You could download the tfw (worldfiles) files on this page?
As Dan mentioned, the .tfw should contain info about the spatial reference. It needs to have the exact same base name as the tif (i.e. same, except the extension) and needs to be in the same folder and the .tif. As an example. my .tfw (in an Albers projection, so yours will look different
edit: might help to see one of your .tfw files...or if you can zip all the files for one of your images and upload, it may help others troubleshoot. Even a .zip may be too large to upload to Geonet (not sure of the limit offhand)
OK the file names are the same (NZ01.tfw = NZ01.tif etc). But I can't get
into the tfw files to alter them. A web search suggests Arc Reader as a
program to open thje tfw file but there doesn't appear to be a download for
ArcReader 10 (I am presuming the version has to match the GIS version (Arc
Reader 10 for ArcGIS 10 and so on).
You can simply use notepad to open the wordfiles.
I think the problem is that your NZ01.tfw and nz01.tif is not the same name for the files!
You could rename NZ01.tfw to nz01.tfw and try to load nz01.tif.
So if I change the .tfw to .tif that will work...?!!
You could try that ... nothing to loose :-)
No. You should not change the extension. You should only change the name before the extensions to match each other.
e.g. NZ01.tif and NZ01.tfw
Ah - and at the moment they are lower and upper case - OK
Right all the files are now named all the same - i.e. in upper case. Still

As you mentioned the data is from Ordnance Survey UK? They propose woldfiles (.tfw) to their data free to download on their homepage.
Geo-referencing, and land and sea tiles
You could compare your wordfiles with the downloaded ones if they have any of your data. Simply drag and drop the .tfw files in notepad to open them.
1:25 000 Scale Colour Raster - 10km x 10km NZ01.TFW looks like this one:
You can't do any such thing in ArcReader.
Now, coming to ArcMap, what happens when you Add Data > Add the TIF Raster image to ArcMap? Could you send a screenshot of the whole ArcMap screen after adding the Raster (TIF Image) to it?
