I am trying to add coordinates into ArcGIS 10.6.1. Below are the Northing and Easting I have been given.
I have added these Northing and Eastings into an Excel sheet and saved them as a CSV File (The CSV has the other two coordinates not shown in the second image).
I then open Arc
Add Data --> Add XY Data
The first confusion comes at this point when I am greeted with this.
When I select the drop down box for Latitude and Longitude, it give me 5 options for both "X_Field" and "Y_Field"
Why is this? When I open up the attribute table
After this I then save the layer as a shapefile, but when I go to reload the shapefile, there is no data points at all.
When I load the points in they produce a line of 4 points which can only be seen at 1:300 ratio (tiny). the points are also meant to be in a square not a line.
Can anyone tell me why I cant create these 4 simple locations into 4 points?
After listening to the comments, I used an online converter https://www.fcc.gov/media/radio/dms-decimal to convert the degree-min-dec-sec data into lat/long.
From here I uploaded them into ArcGIS and got the desired shape I wanted (a simple box). the only issue is that when measuring the distance between the points it came out as seen below.
The issue here is that it is stating the distance between each point is 3m when the desired distance I need is around 10km, why is this happening?
