Geo-referencing course in Huddersfield

The Digital Arts and Humanities Research Group (DAHRG) is holding a one-day course on georeferencing in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, on the 25th of May, 2016

Time: 9am – 5pm

Venue: University of Huddersfield, Queensgate, Huddersfield HD1 3DH

“Georeferencing” describes the linking of data with a physical location. Most commonly this process is referred to when associating raster data (such as a scanned map or satellite images) with spatial locations in a Geo-Informationsystem (GIS). More recently, the term “georeferencing” is also used in connection with the linking of toponyms with coordinates in digitized texts, which is then often called “geotagging”.

Georeferencing of both raster and textual data will be discussed in the course; there is no prior knowledge required, although experience with GIS would be an advantage.
