I have checked the georeference option for my exported PDF but when I import it into Avenza PDF Maps it says it is not georeferenced. I have had this work for other maps but a new map I opened will not work. My new map has an aerial and a polygon I drew and that is all.

    What software are you exporting from ? – jbchurchill Feb 20 '15 at 15:25
  • My guess is that you're using ArcGIS, since there's an option in the pdf export that is a checkbox as you describe. However you should edit your question to clarify. I further suspect that if all you had was an aerial and a polygon you drew, it's possible the dataframe had no coordinate system set and neither the image or polygon shapefile/feature class have one either, and thus there is no georeferencing to export (or be read by Avenza). – Chris W Feb 20 '15 at 21:02
