Join Erica Hayes, Digital Scholarship Librarian, on Wednesday, Apr. 27, from 12–1 p.m. for a virtual workshop entitled “Bringing Historical Maps into GIS.” This is part of the 2022 Falvey Forum Series.
Georeferencing is the process of connecting images (e.g., scanned historical maps, aerial and satellite photographs) to their geographic locations, so that they can be used as spatial layers in GIS software. Using tools like Map Warper and ArcGIS Online, this workshop will provide participants with the steps to align geographic coordinates to a scanned historical map and display them online to examine how locations have changed over time.
This ACS-approved event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library and The Albert Lepage Center for History in the Public Interest, is free and open to the Villanova community.
