Map Sheet import exceeds files size

I have successfully added some georeferenced PDFs as map sheet. However when I try to add a PDF file then georeference it I get the file exceeds 16 MB message and the file can't be added properly. I have tried lowering the resolution of the file to 100 dpi which makes it less than 1 MB. Do you have a suggestion? Would it be better if I georeference it first and then add it? It seems like the georeferenced PDFs I pulled it were quite a bit larger. I have attached an example file.

    Hi Stephen,
    The upload limit is 40mb. Its definitely easier to upload PDFs that are already geo referenced. The alignment interface we provide is functional, but has its quirks. We definitely think that using already georeferenced documents is more streamlined.

    Thanks I will georeference it first and then pull it in.


    PS Really like how our team can download the map sheets to their SARTopo
    phone app and then use them in the field.
