Hello Everyone,

I am a new member to this forum and also a new user to GIS

My problem is:
So i have this data, in latitude and longitude. So i used tool > add XY data > and this give me shape file in points. how ever they are lump together i'm not sure why and i also have a layer, its a california layer. So i want these lat & long points to display on california layer. But they are not projected correctly. The points doesnt show up on their designated locations, instead they just lump together on a single spot that is way off. I did try to set the lat & long data to the projection of the California layer.
