*Pennsic Map Update*

Fun fact: ArcMap does not export the coordinate system if you are streaming data in the map.

Great.  I open PDFMaps to look at the Pennsic map and noticed "Map not referenced" below the file name.  This was never a problem before.  After several tests, it has been confirmed.  Oy.

So, I've downloaded the 2015 imagery for Butler County, PA and made new maps.  There are two maps available.  The first is 8.5 x 14 inches (legal size) (2.2 MB) and the second is 24 x 36 inches (ARCH D) (19.8 MB).  The difference is the map scale and resolution.  The legal size is at 1:6,500 and the ARCH D size is 1:2,500, which means the image resolution is a bit better in the bigger format (smaller maps scale).  The imagery is 2015 NAIP at 1 meter resolution (for you geography geeks).

The links in the previous post have been updated too.

Sorry about this folks.  I just discovered the problem now; right before Pennsic.  Better now than at Pennisic though, right?

Have a good war!
