Lab 1 – Map Digitization and Georeferencing


For this Map, we were required to recreate a historic map of plantations on the island of Madagascar. We did this by georeferencing an old static image of a similar map and creating a new feature dataset based on digitized polygon and point features from the original map. We also created domains for our feature classes. We then used advanced cartographic techniques to create an old-style map. We were instructed to adhere to the styles and symbology of the original map as much as possible.
