Georeferencing raster data Print Page

Georeferencing images

  • You can georeference, or register, raster imagery such as satellite or aerial photos, or scanned paper maps, so that ArcGIS will know its location and allow you to overlay other GIS layers.  This involves matching control points in your raster image and on your already-georeferenced target data. This blog post outlines the process in easy-to-follow steps.  Further online help from Esri.
