CDVS Workshop: Paper Maps for Digital Projects

Do you want to incorporate paper maps into a digital project? Overlaying scanned maps can help illustrate change over time, offer additional context, provide a visually appropriate background, and give access to spatial data not available in other formats. This workshop will teach you how to bring paper maps into modern GIS applications. We will cover concepts and techniques related to georeferencing, the process of aligning map images with the correct locations on the earth. We will also create new GIS data by extracting features from scanned maps. Tutorials will present steps in several desktop and web-based tools. In addition to learning the software, we will discuss some challenges of working with historical maps.
