Professor Scott Madry from the University of North Carolina will present this Geospatial Sciences seminar.

Historical data are becoming more widely seen as a source of valuable data for a wide variety of GIS analysis purposes and academic disciplines. This brief presentation will provide some lessons learned in several years of working with historical cartographic data in GIS. Several technical issues involving methods of georegistration will be addressed, including an improved method of registration developed by the author. Examples will be shown from several research projects, including our 30 year investigation in Burgundy, France.
