### Displaypointsfrom Atable*A Step-by-Step Guide

Hey, wait a minute!

These are supposed to be in Central Idaho!

Do you have data points

that won’t display right

* The table must have X,Y fields, such as Latitude/Longitude or Northing/Easting,

often obtained from field data waypoints.

Designed for use with tools developed by Idaho Fish and Wildlife Information System.

Methods apply broadly and can be implemented by most GIS users.

Open a new ArcGIS map project.

Add the State of Idaho file(from LayerFetcher *)Selected here because it’s in the standard projection used by state data, is visible statewide,is a (simple) single record file, and most data points will fall within state boundaries.

*Get Layer Fetcher (If you work for IDFG):

In your project,Right-click on the table

Select Display XY data

For Coordinate System ofInput Coordinates,

click Edit…

Tip:

X = Lon = East/West (eg, -116.####)

Y = Lat = North/South (eg, 42.####)

Z = elevational attribute (optional )

Open the Geographic Coordinate Systems folder

Open the Worldfolder

SelectWGS 1984

(or the system you need to work with)

(Hint: Add this coordinate system to Favorites so it’s easy to find next time)

ClickOK

Export Data to add therequired Object ID field

Click OKon the

Object ID error message

Browse to folder orgeodatabase location

To save as a Feature Class,

select a geodatabase

To save as a Shapefile, select a folder

Specify the same coordinate system asthe data frame (set when adding the State of Idaho)
