Module 6 Part 2 Georeferencing

Georeferencing Part 2
What kind of coordinate system, what is the map projection, what spatial reference that our data is in? Go to Arc Catalog- file folder- metadata
Or Contents – right click properties- XY Coordinate System You can check out the projection.
Now that the trail map has been georeferenced, the next step is to use it to create a vector layer of the trails complete with attribute information.
So we go to the Bent Creek Folder and Right Click New- New File Geodatabase
Then we need to create a new feature class for the database so we right click on the geodatabase create a new feature class. Here you specify what kind of coordinate system your data is going to be in.
