How would I go about taking a layer from AI or Inkscape and importing it into Arc?
I've got a vector drawing I want to use and I know I need to georeference it but I'm lost as to how. I also can't seem to import it as a shapefile.
As commented by @Mapperz:
in Adobe Illustrator you can export to dxf - this will be non georeferenced but view-able in ArcGIS desktop. then use the georefencing tools for CAD http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//001000000010000000 convert to shape gdb after.
