On Screen Digitization

Posted on January 17, 2012


After registering the image (georeferencing) as in previous post, the next step is performing digitization on screen to image or map that has been registered, or image/ digital map that already has spatial reference.



In this chapter, we will discuss about how to make .shp data, how to perform on screen digitization of image or raster map, and how to make land use map using ArcGIS 10.

Digitization can be performed by using three types of .shp; 1. point (crucial point), 2. polyline (path, line, etc), and 3. polygon (areas).
