Georeferencer for the State Library of New South Wales

Published: June 16, 2015

Glad to see another Georeferencer project for the State Library of New South Wales in Australia. The tricky part of this project was significant changes in the names of the streets, which needed contributors with local knowledge.

Over 900 maps were successfully placed, and the obtained data enriched the library catalogue with geographical locations. More information about the project is available at https://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/research-and-collections/research-and-engagement/digital-volunteering
