I have some archaeological scanned raster that they have a north arrow and a scale bar. There is no grid, no coordinate system.I would like to put those files in a general map. I don't care about the exact position but I would like to keep the scale and the north direction. So I need some tools like move raster, rotate raster, scale raster Are there such tools in QGIS? Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Are any landmarks on the map? You could georeference it to those objects. – tobias47n9e Feb 23 '14 at 17:55
  • There is nothing. Some areas are underground now. I need some tools like scale, rotate, move. – Παύλος Αποστόλου Feb 23 '14 at 18:01
  • I usually think that in that case it is just easier to use Inkscape. Just put the image in the background. Rotate it and adjust the scale to an even number of pixels. Then just draw the vector layer above the raster file. – tobias47n9e Feb 23 '14 at 18:17
  • Did you try it out? How did you do? You could answer your own question and earn some points. – tobias47n9e Feb 27 '14 at 6:35
