I have a geo-referenced file, with geo-referenced data imported. The data in my file all sits in the correct place when I add a Geo-image to check the geo-graphic location - however, the file has never been 'geo-located' - so the internal origin is miles away from the data. If I try to geo-locate now, the data in my file moves position to retain it's offset position to the internal origin, which I don't want. I've tried this with both the geo-referencing turned on for all layers, and also turned off. Is there a way around this?
I have two files containing baseline information for my project - Topographic Survey and Architect's Layout. Both have been imported from DWG into their own new VW files, and georeferenced according to the procedure detailed in the previous georeferencing thread on this forum. I can Geo-image in both of these files and the drawings fit beautifully over the site. I now want to reference the information in these drawings into a new master file, using the design layer viewport referencing system, so that I can use the information to inform my own drawing. However, when I try to do this... while the X Y positions of the drawings remain correct, the GIS stake shows that the design layer viewport referenced layers, when created, are nowhere near the geo-located positions set in their original files. Am I missing something really straightforward? Any help much appreciated.
