Georectifying Historical Maps Using ArcMap

Celebrate GIS Day by georectifying a historical map! Georectifying is the process of taking an image, like an aerial photograph or a print map, and aligning it with a spatial coordinate system. In this workshop, participants will georectify an 1844 street map of Boston using ArcMap and then add points that locate nineteenth-century churches.
