Historic maps and imagery for modern scientific applications
What kind of data sources, i.e. historic maps, aerial and terrestrial
images, classic paintings or old maps, are available to address current day research objectives?
The conference serves as a platform for scientists of various
disciplines who employ historic maps and/or imagery for their research: Archaeologists utilizing historic aerial imagery for mapping of surface features, Historians working on terrestrial and urbanistic developments as well as Geoscientists quantifying landscape evolution from historic maps are cordially invited to present their work. We also call upon scientists from Geodesy and Informatics to present aims and methods for digitizing and visualization of historic data, as well as anyone else working in related fields.
