How do you add xy data to a DEM Raster in ArcGIS 10.1?
I have done this before, and it has worked just fine. However, when I recently tried adding a MS Access database which has lat/lon coordinates for 10 sites, it did not work (I am currently using Microsoft Office 2013, I am not sure whether this has anything to do with it but when it worked before I was using Microsoft office 2010). I have tried many ways, for instance:
1) Saving the Access table as a .mdb and then on ArcCatalog making the OLE DB connection using Microsoft Jet 4.0. OlE Provider. Apparently the connection was a 'success, so I proceeded to create a feature class 'from XY' Table. When I add this to the DEM raster in ArcMap, it does not display the site locations.
2) I have also tried saving the Access table as a .accdb, then adding the database connection using 'Microsoft Office 12.00 Access Database Engine'. I typed in the correct pathway and when I click on 'Test Connection' the program crashes.
3) Finally I have tried adding xy data in ArcMap, but encounter the same problems - either it doesn't display or the program automatically shuts down.
If anyone can please let me know whether I am missing a crucial step or something is actually wrong with the software, or whether there is anything else I can do, it would be greatly appreciated!
