Saturday 15th February, 2014
3:30pm to 4:00pm
Mishka will describe the New York Public Library Map Warper tool and the Citizen Cartography workshops currently offered at the Library using the tool. The Map Warper, available at maps.nypl.org, enables librarians and the general public to add valuable geographic context to old maps by overlaying digital images of historical maps onto a contemporary digital map through a process called georectification, or "warping" maps. They can also "trace" or digitize important features from historical maps and atlases to create new public data sets of geographic information.
