Hi guys, I'm obviously new for the audience and as a user of ArcMap. I have a set of data from offshore survey in excel format and would like to map it (it's basically salinity variations within the area). I have the base map of the area. How to approach this.Thanks a lot!

Do you have x, y coordinates in your excel sheet?
You can right-click the excel sheet in ArcCatalog and choose Create Feature Class > From XY table... Then you can just choose the fields with your latitude and longitude, and pick the coordinate system your xy data is in, and create a shapefile.
