Integration of historical maps into GIS

Historical maps are precious materials, which show spatial distribution of land use,
vegetation, river patterns, and so on at the time the maps were produced. They are used for
the reconstruction of past environments or for comparisons in time analyses. However the
imprecision of the historical maps, in the geometrical sense, makes the task of the comparison
very difficult. This drawback brings us to the idea of incorporating the historical maps into
GIS, after geometrical transformation of the maps. It makes possible comparing and overlaying
multiple maps from different time periods. Furthermore it gives map-scales to historical maps
and enables broader range of quantitative considerations. This greatly increases the value of
archival maps as information source.
The paper outlines the procedure of incorporating old maps into GIS and some results of
the transformation of early maps.
