How can I use an image from Google Earth Pro on ArcGIS. Is there a way to georefernce it automatically? angeliki 1/22/10 5:14 AM
Hello everyone!
I wonder if there is a way to download an image from Google Earth Pro and georefernce it automatically so that I can use it on ArcView. Also, I've been told that the coordinate system that is used on Google Earth has some different parameters from the system GCS_WGS_1984 that is available on ArcView so the georeference has always a fault. Is this true?and if yes, is there a way to overcome this problem?

As far as I know its not possible to get a georeferenced image from Google Earth (inc Pro) 

As for coordinate system - it is using WGS84 - but not sure on the compatibility with ArcView. 

In particular an image exported from Google Earth, will be looking at the imagry projected onto the Earth sphere, so the image will always be slightly distorted. (but if looking direct down, and reasonably close to the ground the distortion might be neglible)

That first link doesnt work. You need to copy the full address, rather than copy the shorted url from serach results. 

(alternatively link to the search page you used to find it.

You can get ESRI layerfiles with Bing Maps imagery or a street map but you can't tell the date of the imagery.
