Mr. Newton,

It depends on which FDOT District you received the raster from and where
the location is exactly.
Here in District Two we have three different coordinate systems we use for
our CADD work.
(See attached file: Zones_Districts3.pdf)
If I were you I would contact the person you got the raster from and ask
them the projection and coordinate system used if any.
If they do not know let me know and I will try to find out for you.
I will need the raster and it's location though

Thank You for your time and efforts

Hello:  I received an aerial from FDOT (tif format) along with associated
file.  The rasters native format is State Plane 83, feet.  How can I get
Arcmap to project this correctly?  I could georeference the raster myself
would rather tell arcmap what the correct projection should be.  I assume I
need to generate a .prj file.  Is this correct?
