Historic Maps Georeferencing Project

The Map Shop is home to hundreds of historical paper maps that we are trying to get digitized. Once the maps are scanned and uploaded to the computer they need to be georeferenced so that they contain spatial information. This project is open to all students hoping to gain some experience working with GIS. Please reach out if you are interested!
