So have a university campus map that was drawin in normal AutoCAD with no coordinate system. I am trying to geo-regefernce it. I was able to get ahold to a SHP file of the campus buidings from another entity on campus that have field verfied coordinates of all the buildings and drawn them in ArcGIS. What I would like to do is connect to the shape file and then move my CAD map "on top" of the shape file buildings and do any adjustments I might need. Then my CAD map would be "geo-referenced".
My problem is that when I connect to the shape file the building in the shape file are 1/12 the size of the CAD drawn buildings. I am assuming that this is becase the CAD buiding were drawn as 1 unit = 1" whereas the SHP buildings were drawn as 1 unit = 1'.
I can scale down my CAD building by 1/12 but I was curious if anybody had any other solutions. Thanks.
