Georeferencing in QGIS
This workshop covers the basics of georeferencing static images in a GIS using the open source GIS package QGIS. Georeferenced images or maps can be used as contextual layers in a GIS project, or as part of a data extraction process to convert static map data into digital vector data.
Setting up for best results
Georeferencing from a set of known map coordinates

Digitizing new GIS features from a georeferenced maps
Note: Open to current Stanford affiliates ONLY.
