Georeferencing and Digitization of Civil War Battlefields and Other Paper Maps, Presented by Vince DiNoto, Jefferson Community and Technical College
Monday, June 11, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
The concepts of this workshop will be the georeferencing and digitization of historical maps in particular those from the Civil War since we are currently recognizing the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War. The concepts of this workshop can be applied to the battlefield maps and other historical maps such as Sanborn maps. The workshop will concentrate on the use of multiple maps; some of the battles to be discussed will be Antietam (1862), Second Bull Run (1862), Perryville (1862), Fredericksburg (1862), Gettysburg (1863), Petersburg (1864-65) and Morgan’s Raid (1863). The workshop will explore locating of maps, as well as other historical documents that can bring the social fabric into a complete perspective. No prior geospatial knowledge is required for this workshop and could be a great team project for teachers in multiple subject areas.
