When publishing a map, dataset, or layer, the spatial reference (coordinate system) of your map, dataset, or layer is different than the spatial reference required by the chosen tiling scheme. All tiling schemes are associated with a certain spatial reference. Your spatial reference must match the spatial reference of your tiling scheme in order for tiles to be created.
For a map, change the coordinate system of the map to the same coordinate system used in the tiling scheme. For guidance on setting the data frame's coordinate system, see Specify a coordinate system.
- For a dataset or layer, use the ArcGIS Online / Bing Maps / Google Maps tiling scheme, the WGS 1984 Geographic Coordinate System, Version 2 tiling scheme, or a tiling scheme that has the same spatial reference as the dataset or layer.
If you are using the ArcGIS Online / Google Maps / Bing Maps tiling scheme, this spatial reference is WGS 1984 Web Mercator (Auxiliary Sphere). If you are using WGS 1984 Geographic Coordinate System, Version 2 tiling scheme, this spatial reference is WGS 1984 Geographic Coordinate System. If you are using a tiling scheme file, the spatial reference is the same as the map from which you originally created the tiling scheme.
