Workshop Description

Interacting with historical maps in their proper geographic space allows for a more accurate representation of a particular place and the changes it has undergone over time. This workshop will provide you with the steps to align geographic data to a digitized historical map and create a georeferenced historical map. Participants will work with simple tools like Map Warper, Mapbox, and Tableau to overlay the georeferenced historical map on top of a GIS modern basemap for use in an interactive web mapping application.
