Data & GIS Workshop Series

This class will show some ways that ArcGIS can be used for the analysis and visualization of historical spatial data. Topics discussed will be: sources for GIS layers reflecting the past; georeferencing a scanned historic map; creating new layers from scratch based on known locations of features; editing existing GIS layers to reflect former features; and vectorizing a scanned map to create editable features.
