Just a little picture

The Projection and Coordinate System in Google Earth?

Despite reading other opinions online, I finally found that if I export an image from Google Earth Pro (don't forget to hit U and N first to make sure the image is north up and in plan view rather than off axis and oblique), I can successfully georeference the image in ArcGIS if I set my data frame to: Projected Coordinate Systems: World: "WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere)." After georeferencing I can re-project the image to whatever coordinate system I actually need it to to be in.
