This workshop will cover the basic concepts involved in georeferencing/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.
Prior knowledge: This workshop does not require any prior knowledge.
Please note: This training is a presentation of the D-Lab's GeoMatters working group. Participants can stay after the workshop from 11:00am to 12:00pm for group or individual consulting on their research.
