I have a couple of historical maps of Africa which need to be georeferenced. There are latitude and longitude information on the map and now my question is may I use wgs84 in order to georeference these maps or there is some other coordinate system better for this?
The work is in ArcGIS 10.4, so I have used wgs84 control points and after that connected with each point from raster. There are some bad results in raster position so I want to increase the accuracy on some way.
The map is annotated with Streit 1929.
The scale of the original maps are 1:10000000, with Africa broken up onto 5 pages. Pictures of the maps are here.
The map scales are listed here.
