Georeferencing Tutorial
Figure 1 shows the problems of overlaying layers that are not in the same coordinate system. Theobjects as shown in this figure are a layer containing countries across the world and a layer containingone of the greatest drinks in the world which will shall refer to as “Old Parr” from this point on. It isobvious that these layers do not match up since the Old Parr was being drunk in Trinidad at theUniversity of the West Indies at the time. It shall be noted that the hand in this figure is that of one of the greatest hand models of all times. For the purpose of this paper we shall not use his name since thiswas a PJ for him.Figure 1
Using various Geographic and Geodetic software we applied a 3 parameter transformation to the OldParr to try to convert to the current transformation used by the World Countries layer (Figure 2). It isevident from figure 2 that the current transformation used was not optimal.Figure 2
We then applied a 5 parameter transformation, the results of which are shown in Figure 3. Definitely,this transformation worked much better than that of the 3 parameter transformation. However, as seenin figure 3, the layers need to be rotated. At the time while drinking we decided to use various complexalgorithms using MatLab 2009. This method proved to be very complex and time consuming and presentcomputer resources did not permits most intended operations.Figure 3
