Introduction to Georeferencing

Workshop: Science Libraries: Digital Scholarship | November 15 | 10-11:30 a.m. | 356 Barrows Hall

 Susan Powell, Library


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.

No prior knowledge required. Please bring a laptop with you.
