These instructions apply to ArcMap® 10.2.2 in Esri® ArcGIS® for Desktop, and describe how to load JPG and JGW files exported from Nearmap without losing their georeferencing information. Note that the JPG and JGW filenames (except for their extensions) must be identical and in the same folder. This allows the software to load the JGW automatically when you load the JPG.
In the Catalog Tree, navigate to the filename of the JPG you wish to import, right-click the filename, and click Properties.
Right-click Layers and select Properties...
Switch to the Coordinate System tab.
Search for and select the local projection you would like your map to be in, then click OK. If the JPG was already in your desired coordinate system, this step is unnecessary.
With ArcCatalog and ArcMap side-by-side, drag your file of interest from ArcCatalog into ArcMap.
If a Create Pyramids window appears, click Yes.
Your image should appear, in which case, your image import is complete and you can stop here. If you have changed the projection, a tilt will usually appear in the image.
