UB & CDH present: Georeferencing – An innovative update for old maps19 apr 2022
Van 10:00 - 12:00uur
Location: Living Lab DH @ University Library, Drift 27, Utrecht
Georeferencing is a feast for the eyes for lovers of (old) maps. By digitally positioning a scan of an old map over a modern reference map, it becomes more geographically accessible and (re)usable. During this University Library showcase, Special Collections curator Marco van Egmond will show a number of beautiful applications and possibilities of georeferencing using practical examples. The library has been georeferencing parts of its collections for ten years now. This way thousands of interesting old maps have become widely available by and for scientists, students and the general public.
