Virtual Workshop (Free): “How to Georeference: Turn Historical Maps Into Data” (03/13/24)

January 19, 2024

Michigan State University (MSU) Libraries are hosting a free virtual workshop on how to give spatial information to a historical map in order to incorporate it into a GIS (Geographic Information System), a process called georeferencing. Information can then be extracted from the map and turned into data via digitization. The process will be demonstrated using the open-source software QGIS. The virtual workshop is scheduled for March 13, 2024 from 4:00 to 5:30 PM ET. The workshop is free to attend, however registration is required and seats are limited.
