I really need some advice on creating historical street maps using GIS software (I have access to QGIS and Diva).
Basically, I want to upload a number of historic OS sheets, which I have downloaded from Digimaps in tiff format.
I then want to create dot density (or similar) maps focusing on specific districts, which will illustrate instances of prostitution. Many of the streets I want to map do not exist any more, hence the need for historic OS maps.
I've been fiddling around with the two software packages but I am a complete novice and cannot find out how to do what I need to do.
Could anyone help?
Many thanks in advance!
(Note that this question is not a duplicate as I am looking to stitch together historic OS maps - see my comments in the discussion below).
