This workshop will cover the basic concepts involved in georeferencing, or georectifiying, a digital image and provide hands-on practice using a web-based interface. Georeferencing involves “spatializing” scanned maps or aerial imagery so they can be used in a geographic information system (GIS).We will cover the basics of topics such as projections, coordinate systems, and the theory behind georeferencing. We will also spend some time practicing georeferencing.Knowledge Requirements: No prior knowledge required.
Technology Requirements: Bring a laptop to follow along.
