GIS maps are created through a process that involves digitally tracing a paper map . The process is called digitizing.

Sometimes you might need to digitize a paper map you buy from a shop. Other times you might need to digitize a map that a topic specialist has created while in the field.

In this video I also show you how to digitize a map that a theme specialist has hand draw a field interpretation on.


I love what you're doing I'll be kick starting my GIS at UQ, St.Lucia Brisbane. I'm in dire need of a refresher course & that's what your tutorials is offering. Thanks

I'm a new PhD student studying water resources at University of Malaysia and I 'm really interested in learning gis. However, I'm a beginner in it. The video was very perfect and I hope van follow your other videos.
