I am relatively new to QGIS and using it on windows vista. Problem:
- I have to digitalise an aerial map and then extract the coordinates.
- I have absolutely no idea how to start
Thanking you in advance for any help shown towards me.
Although i hate giving link-only answers your question literally calls for it.
If you have absolutely no idea how to start you should definitely read some tutorials first. The purpose of this site is to help you with GIS problems and not to teach you how to work with GIS-software! IMHO this requires to take ether a professional course or a lot of spare time for reading/practice.
For basic and advanced tutorials:
For applied tutorials including digitalization:
Click through the tutorials and if you still stumble upon any problems during a specific problem than post the details of your problem in a new question (mentioning the software you used).
