Just started using Map 3D and I am trying to place a run in a specific location in Virgina. I set my coordinate system to "NAD83 Virginia State Planes, North Zone, US Foot". I used both DD and DMS to place my run with the GEOMARKLATLON command. I exported to SHP file and tried bringing it into ArcMAP to see if it was correct, but my run ends up in the Pacific ocean. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to adjust settings the Coordinate Systems? Maybe how I am exporting? Confused and would greatly appriciate some guidance.
thank you for your time,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Try using the coordinate tracker and digitize with that. You will need to set the tracker to display both your state plane coordinats and a Lat/Lon coordinate system. Make the L/L cs active and type in the coordinates in the boxes. It takes a few practice inputs to get it right but does work.
When using the geomarklatlong command you are mixing units with your dwg set in State Plane Foot CS.
