I have downloaded a historic map of Poland. I am having a problem aligning it to a modern map. I have tried various methods and coordinate system using over 50 points, but nothing works. It gets close, but never close enough. The best is when projected by Georeferencer from that site, but I cannot save it as GeoTIFF.

    You'll want to research and possibly ask about extracting vector data from a raster separately from this question. This site works best with single focused questions. May 24, 2016 at 13:15
  • It sounds like the problem exporting to GeoTIFF is one that could be made the focus of this question using the edit button beneath it to remove the other.

  • I narrowed it down. Just need to properly export it to GeoTiff May 24, 2016 at 16:40

    What software version are you using since you didn't mention it...

    QGIS is good enough for georeferencing. You just need to edit your question, insert a screenshot of the georeferencing settings form. We need to know which transformation, resampling and SRS you have chosen, and how you grab the coordinates.
