ArcGIS 10.1. Problems with the coordinate system: Hi, I dowload the land use cover in the Urban Atlas for the city of Kiel, Germany, and when I add a base map (world Imagery) it appears on a wrong place. I changed the coordinate system to WGS_1984_Web_Mercator_Auxiliary_Sphere (the same of the base map) but nothing changed. I tryed also with the ETRS89_UTM_zone_32N with same results. What should I do? Thank you very much

ERSI tools (like arcmap) are using a proprietary dialect for some projection systems. We normally provide OGC (open geospatial consortium) projections files with the datasets we publish. We can't customize our datasets to be totally compliant with processing environments which are not compatible with open standards. For ESRI users we do however provide a separate ERSI friendly prj file http://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/urban-atlas. You can download the relevant file, delete the prj file coming with the dataset (OGC standard), and rename it to match the dataset name. Arcmap should then stop complaining. Hope this helps.
