Process_Description:
The four maps were scanned using an Eagle 4080 scanner. The resolution was set at 400 dpi with the 10, dynamic 0. The gridlines on the maps were of the Bessel Ellipsoid of 1841. They were transformed to NAD 27 by using the -1.74 seconds, Longitude -19.56 seconds. The maps were then registered using MapInfo in NAD 27. The shoreline was then digitized and compared to lighthouses and features that still exist today. Small adjustments were made. Where there were overlaps and gaps where the maps came together, they were blended to make a best fit. After all adjustments were made, the projection was saved as UTM 27, Zone 18.
