I'm relatively new to GIS, so I may use incorrect terms, but I'll try my best. I'm using ArcView 10. My current coordinate system information is as follows.
I believe this is correct, as it is the default coordinate system in our environment.
I have a CSV file that includes information I'd like to display on a map alongside all the other GIS layers I have available. The problem I'm having is that the information in the CSV file is in latitude and longitude.
I was able to "Add Data" to import the CSV file. The problem I'm having is displaying the data visually. Using the "Display XY Data" tool, I have the following settings.
When I click "OK", the data is plotted visually, but not where it should be. I think it's treating the relatively small latitude and longitude values as whatever projection the map is using. I can see the layer is displayed if I zoom out to 1:30,000,000, so I am successfully displaying the data, however it should be shown on top of the existing layers.
Is there a way to convert the latitude and longitude data from a CSV file on import to display correctly?
Update: Here's a sample ofthe CSV data I'm working with.
