Georeferencing

9 08 2011

I wanted to highlight some of the work I did for the last map from my previous post. One of my goals when doing the survey work was to get enough high quality photographs and corresponding GPS points to be able to georeference the pictures in Arcmap.  Georeferencing is the process of aligning spatial data (in this GPS points)  to an image file (in this case photographs of architecture).  By doing this I can check previously drawn top plans of architecture and make adjustments or if I want I can use GIS Arcmap to draw new top plans.  This ability is especially important because there are a few squares excavated where original top plans were never drawn.  Below is a picture of the photographs from Area C georeferenced.
