I have a file in ECEF WGS84 in meters.

I want to import these points in ArcMap 10.5 as point layer.

The file to import is in Excel format. I can import them with Excel to layer tool. I can see all the points, but I can't get them on the map in the right position.

Here is the file header and first line:

F:/DG_Paderborn-Borchen - Etteln_170620_Run1/2017-06-20_10-35-25/ladybug_panoramic_000‌​000.jpg,JPG,0,285833‌​39722,1181983021.108‌​2721,3922148.9627709‌​221,604199.614461860‌​27,4976781.334698205‌​8,-177.5736892226599‌​7,7.1055832760669553‌​,-79.315623440207304‌​,1068

Does somebody know a way to accomplish this?

  • How far from "in the right position" are your points? What were the detailed steps that you performed to import them? – PolyGeo Jul 5 '17 at 21:26
  • Its so far out of the world that it's lost. It is by the way a mistake from me, it should be CSV in my text, so Excel to layer. – Bjorn ten Broeke Jul 5 '17 at 21:35

  • Please edit your question to revise it with any requested information. – PolyGeo Jul 5 '17 at 21:38

    ArcGIS doesn't support ECEF coordinates. You'll have to convert to lat-lon-h first. – mkennedy Jul 5 '17 at 21:44
