This is my first THATCamp so I’m not too sure about how play, teach, and make sessions work. Pretty sure I don’t want a talk session, though. In any case, I’m excited to find out more about how THATCamp works and meet y’all.
I’m starting a project using land surveys from the eighteenth century and want to explore and learn more about how other people are using such historical maps in geographic information systems and web mapping, anything from georeferencing to text and feature extraction to the many things that I’m sure that I’m entirely unaware of. I’m currently using QGIS and not bothering with ArcGIS anymore, but I’m also interested in web apps like Google Maps, Palladio, and so on.
