I am georeferencing a static map in JPEG format. I would prefer to use QGIS for a variety of reasons. I've never georeferenced with QGIS before, so I may not have the process quite right.
I georeferenced the image using the georeferencer plugin and a Bing aerial map from the OpenLayers plugin. The result looks great in QGIS.
I used WGS84/ Pseudo Mercator for both the project and for the output TIFF. The issue arose when I loaded up the georeferenced TIFF in ArcGIS for comparison.
It appeared about 16 miles from where it was supposed to be. It's in the ballpark, but clearly nowhere near good enough.
Could this be some sort of issue with on-the-fly projections?
At every step of the way in both programs I set the coordinate system to WGS84/ Pseudo Mercator.
What could be going wrong?
