I have a favor to ask. I already done the step that Mr PolyGeo and Aaron gave me from my previous question and it really look great when the layer did match all together. Thank you for that advise.

It almost the same problem. The problem is, why the layer that I add into table of contents did not move into any single place that I edit in the properties?? It only stick into one place only. I have try many ways to change the location of the layer added.

enter image description here

The red point is my layer added after I add the Bing Maps from Arcgis 10. Then I click the right click button < properties < Coordinate system.

I'm still learning the basic tho. Please kindly help me. Thank you.

Your layer is not in the correct spatial location? – artwork21 Aug 15 '12 at 2:21
yup. Do you know how to fix this? I already click every location in archgis coordinate system and it seem doesn't have a solution for this. – dark_kaoru Aug 15 '12 at 2:50
What Coordinate System are you wanting to display your data in? If you don't change it via Data Frame Properties, then the Coordinate System of the Data Frame will be that of the first data set added to it. – PolyGeo Aug 15 '12 at 6:22
I wanting Asia - malaysia map to display in my data. But it seem that the layer didn't match any map from arcgis. And i already done that. – dark_kaoru Aug 15 '12 at 6:56
Please take a look at this question and the related answers.… There are 2 things you need to ensure. Make sure that you know the projection of your layer. Make sure to "Define" the coordinate system of the layer to match the known projection. Make sure to set the coordinate system of the Data Frame. Once you have correctly defined the coordinate systems of each component, they should all overlay. If not, one of those items is still incorrect. – Get Spatial Aug 16 '12 at 0:54
