GeoTech Center/KITCenter Georeferencing Historical Maps Workshop

Description

This workshop will explore the georeferencing of historical maps. A historical map that was originally created on paper will not have an electronic reference to the surface of the earth. This workshop will explore how to take a map that was originally created on paper and reference it to the surface of the earth so that it can be utilized in a geospatial system. This allows the educator to utilize today’s images with data created in the past. The specific case that will be done will be to georeference civil war battlefields with imagery and shapefiles of today. The heads up digitization of information contained on the map will also be done. No previous GIS knowledge is required. Online video and printable documents will be available for the participants to use after the workshop. Organization Info: GeoTech Center www.geotechcenter.org
