Building on the "Georectifying Historical Maps" workshop, the next step in creating useable GIS data from historical map sources often involves digitizing features to create new vector layers. This workshop will introduce the basic concepts and best-practices of feature digitization. We'll explore the tools and processes through a hands-on exercise.
Bring a laptop with QGIS installed. Beginner lever understanding of GIS is expected (through the GIS Fundamentals workshop or similar). **Note that participants do not need to have attended the "Georectifying Historical Maps" workshop to attend this one.
Workshop will be held at the D-Lab in Barrows 356. Register through the D-Lab website: http://dlab.berkeley.edu/training/geospatial-data-creation-digitizing-features.
Co-hosted by the Library and D-Lab.
