I have a large collection of geological maps, scanned in format .jpeg, that cover an important region. Each original map's dimensions are 100cm length by 50cm height.
Analyse map by map all these datas makes very difficult to construct something like a big picture of the situation.
Is there any tool that I can use to assemble all these maps in a single big one on which it could be possible to navigate, to zoom and unzoom, etc?
In other words, I'm looking for some way to convert my database in something like a google map.
After a few searches, something like image pyramids seem to be a good solution for visualizing my maps, but how can I construct the pyramids with so many initial images ?
And after, which tool can I use to visualize the pyramids ?
