SO432, GIS Fall 2009
GIS Registration and Vector Digitizing
Objectives: This lab will teach you
Registration of data sets.
Digitizing of vector features, both point and line.
For a sample of what we will be doing, go to http://www.usna.edu/Users/oceano/pguth/website/kml/normandy_geomorph/normandy_geomorph_mapping.htm where you can see a sample registered map and file with the front lines. You can also go to http://www.usna.edu/Users/oceano/pguth/website/kml/normandy.htm where there is file with daily locations for the divisions.
Insure that you have downloaded the newest MICRODEM.(do an update).
There is an option of the "File, Tools, Download data". You must run it and do the following downloads:
FW-tools: you will need this download to open the JPEG2000 files.
You will probably have to download and install DNR-Garmin so that you can digitize in Google Earth..
You will need these icons, which you can download by right clicking and then picking the save as choice.
Go to http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/collections/maps/wwii/date.html and download the daily situation map for the date assigned in the table below. The file you get will be a JPEG2000 file.
Directions for the lab are in the MICRODEM help file, under "Tutorials and labs", "GIS" , "Register image and digitize" on the table of contents.
