Week 11: Georeferencing Student Spotlights

Georeferencing Lab Overview: 

In previous labs, students found, obtained, and viewed several types of GIS dataset formats. Each of these datasets had been created by someone specifically for a GIS system complete with geographically referenced coordinate data built in to the file. This is why, when you add data to ArcMap, it (usually) lines up properly automatically. The Georeferencing lab teaches students a method of adding this geographic referencing to a dataset (georeferencing), and how to create some types of new geographic data.


  • Utilize ArcGIS tools to georeference aerial photographs
  • Demonstrate the Editing skills learned last week
  • Discover ArcScene and produce a 3D map

Congratulations to this week's Student Spotlights!
