JPEG Base Map
A client has provided a base map they wish to use in .JPEG format. How can I add this JPEG to ArcGIS as a base layer over which layers for sewer districts, critical environmental areas, water districts, etc. can be added? I wish to extract the final map as a JPEG.
Mapping Center Answer:
JPEG is a supported raster format, and you should be able to add it to your map as a layer. In fact this is what we did for the Crater Lake map on mapping center, described in the Flattening Overlaid Images topic.
Exporting that map to JPEG should be no problem, though I would recommend setting the JPEG Quality setting in the Export Options to much closer to Maximum--since the JPEG base map may already be of lower quality--and you wouldn't want to loose more.
