I'm trying to plot some GPS coordinates onto the World Light Gray Canvas basemap, but they are not showing up near the correct location (Ecuador). I uploaded a shapefile for Ecuador which did show up in the correct location on the basemap, so I'm not sure why the lat/long are so far off.
Spatially, the locations appear to be the correct distance from one another, but they are showing up near the prime meridian instead of off the coast of South America.
I have the coordinates in decimal degrees in an excel file (0.32, -89.95), and I'm adding the XY data with X=long, and Y=lat, and the coordinates should be WGS_1984 (I got them from google maps, so probably the mercator projection?)
Steps I took: Add data--> Add excel sheet with coordinates --> Display XY Data--> X Field=Long, Y Field=Lat, Coordinate System=GCS_WGS_1984
