Working with historical maps: Georeferencing images. GIS applied to archaeology

A new module of the free course about GIS for archaeologists is now available, and we are now halfway through the course. At this module we will see how we can use Geographic Information Systems to georeference historical maps, so we can use them for our projects and cross them with current cartography.

During the exercise, we will proceed to georeference a scanned image with historical information of a city using reference cartography.

If you have not done the previous exercises, we recommend you to start with the first module.

We remind you that the data to follow the course can be downloaded in a compressed .zip file from this link.

Remember that for doubts about software use, carrying out the exercises, and problems that you find when carrying out the course, you can use the gvSIG users mailing list.
