Hi all! I've been slowly moving our private lands biologists to a Fields Maps-based data collection workflow but there are still some remnant pieces/parts that we have yet to integrate. I have created a relational database in ArcPro and defined it to a custom projection matching that of our agency data, published to AGOL as a feature service. The staff use a web editor for data management in the office and can create and manage their own data. But our agency has to incorporate a desktop site assessment which utilizes an ArcMap plug-in and when the feature service is opened in ArcMap, the projection changes--- so areas are incorrect.
Does anyone know how to preserve the projection from AGOL to desktop? @AlixVezina is this something you might be able to help with? Or can you point me to the right person? The staff use specific templates to also create maps and I have to explore whether I can set this up in AGOL. They do not have access to Pro. Thank you very much for your input. Kristal
Hi @KristalWalsh ,
I am not too familiar how projections work in ArcMap, having mostly used ArcGIS Pro in my GIS life.. :)
Perhaps these two resources may be useful:
Otherwise, I would suggest posting your question in the ArcMap community: ArcMap - Esri Community and hopefully someone there will be able to point you in the right direction!
