Hi All,

I've recently tried uploading a CSV file populated in Excel which contains a large list (720) of X/Y coordinates of motorway locations in Kent/Sussex UK.
The file seems to import successfully, yet the coordiantes do not display on the map.

If I zoom out to the full extent of the basemap, I can see the coordinates are North of the map, Yet the X/Y coordinates in the list appear to be correct.

I've attached an xls version of my coordinates, Can anyone tell me if there is a problem with the coordinates themselves?


y                    x
490933.26 107001.26

Many Thanks.
