How to Georeference a Historical Map in QGIS

How to Georeference a Historical Map in QGIS Online

Historical maps and aerial photos can reveal what the world used to look like before modern infrastructure was built and before natural events altered the course of rivers or changed where people could live. In this workshop you will learn how to georeference historical maps and photos using the free and open-source mapping software, QGIS. Data used in the demo and a tutorial will be made available so you can practice on your own, but you should install QGIS on your computer before the workshop if you want to complete the exercise along with the instructor (download here: https://www.qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html). This workshop is geared towards folks with a basic understanding of GIS concepts. If you have no prior experience but would like to attend, you may want to complete the Learn the Basics of QGIS (https://umass-gis.github.io/workshops/content/basics-qgis/) tutorial ahead of time.
