Mapping Data with QGIS 4: Work with Historical Maps and Photos

Mapping Data with QGIS 4: Work with Historical Maps and Photos

Historical data sources like maps and aerial photos can be treasure troves for GIS users, especially if they want to map how the world used to look before modern infrastructure was built, or before natural events altered the course of rivers or changed where people could live. This workshop focuses on two sources of historical GIS data: maps and photos. SKILLS ACQUIRED: Attendees will learn how to find these historical sources online. They will practice georeferencing maps using an online tool, georeferencing photos using QGIS, and digitizing features on the historical source to create a custom dataset.
