When & Where
Tue, September 30, 2014 - 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
D-Lab: Convening Room (Barrows 356B)

In this workshop we will learn about the basic concepts involved in georeferencing and get some hands-on experience with the process in QGIS, a free, open-source GIS tool. Georeferencing involves “spatializing” scanned maps or aerial imagery so that they can be used in a 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 geo-referencing.
