Hey, does anyone know how to add an excel table of long/lat points to a map in GIS (ArcMap)? I have done some geocoding before but that relies on street addresses for a match. Is there a different way of doing this for long/lat positions, so that they appear as points on a GIS map?

Much appreciated,
