XY Coordinates Don't Match Map

Question asked by murel.j_nu on May 4, 2020

I'm having a problem with mapping my x.y (long, lat) points on ArcGIS Online—I only have access to Online, not Pro or Desktop. I've checked my long/lat points against other sources (e.g. Google Earth) and they appear in the correct spot there, but when I upload them to my Online map (as a .csv file), they appear slightly away from where the point is supposed to be. Are there any thoughts on how to fix this?


N.b. I've checked past questions/discussions that seem to encounter this same issue, but none of the solutions work:

1) Here they recommend switching base layer to geographic-world-wgs1984, which I did (among other base layers) and still encounter the same problem.

Lat Long into ArcMap Problem 


2) Here the responder recommends changing data frame's coordinate system, but I can't figure out how to do that on ArcGIS Online—Google was no help here.

XY coordinates and data frame correct but points are displayed in the wrong location. 


Any advice is appreciated!
