Georeferencer gives libraries and archives a simple way to make their scanned map collections more attractive, engage the general public, make overlays with other maps, deliver standardized Web Map Service (OGC WMS), and at the same time also enrich existing metadata records with numerical spatial footprint to allow comfortable geographical searching.

Components for your website (so-called “Widgets”)
