Hello ESRI community,
I have a pickle of a problem to solve. I have two sets of X/Y data that I am trying to import into Arcmap 10.5
I know one thing about these numbers--they relate to San Francisco, CA.
My professor suggested I try and troubleshoot the problem by setting up various projection styles in Arcmap and examining the change to the coordinate display in the bottom right. From this I can conclude that these numbers are likely in feet or meters rather than in decimal degrees. However, when I take the .csv into Arcmap and translate x/y to points with the projected NAD1987 US Feet these points are no where near SF. I brought in a known SF data set from their open portal and both feet and meters are no where near the numbers listed above.
How on earth (pun intended) can I get the right projection for this data set given the numbers I have so that I can turn my data into something useful?
I have looked at the following: How To: Identify an unknown projected coordinate system using ArcMap 10.1 and later versions but it doesn't address the problem that I have.
Thank you so much for any help.
