I have a jpg of a scanned map. I can add it to arcmap, and view it fine until I try to assign spatial coordinates. When I use the georeferencing toolbar to "fit to display" to begin the process, the image does not appear to fit to display, and on top of that is no longer visible. If I hit 'zoom to layer' I'm brought to the display screen I selected, so it's like the image is there it just isn't visible. This was a pretty big, detailed provincial map but I didn't think that would matter.
The jpg. what created from a large map I scanned into 12 pieces. I sewed the pieces together into 1 jpg for georeferencing in ArcGIS. I wonder if that's a factor. Jpg is 28 MB. I've georeferenced 377 MB just fine in the past.
I also tried converting to png. Same thing. The image won't load for georeferencing. Any ideas how to fix? Everything is fine until I touch "fit to display"
