Georeferencing an Image

The Alderman Library Scholars’ Lab continues its series of workshops on geographic information systems (GIS) this Thursday, October 1 at 2:00 p.m. in the Brown Science & Engineering Library electronic classroom (Room 133).  GIS Specialists Chris Gist and Kelly Johnston will guide participants through the process of georeferencing, or aligning a digital image–such as a scanned historic map–with its spatial location.  While there are no prerequisites for attending the workshop, a basic knowledge of Windows computers is helpful.  The session will build on skills from previous sessions but those unable to attend earlier workshops should feel welcome to attend later sessions.  No RSVP is required, though we encourage you to arrive early as space is limited.
