Conversion Specifications Original scanned tiffs approximately 148mb per map where converted to smaller web sized images (2-3mb) using Photoshop to allow for easy access while preserving image quality. Each map was georeferenced using ArcGIS 10, aligning each image to its appropriate geospatial location according to reference layers consisting of satellite imagery, street centerlines and Salt Lake City parcel data. These GIS files were then converted to KMZ files using Global Mapper software allowing the map to be viewable in Google Earth. While care has been taken to maintain georeferencing accuracy, some map features have changed over time, resulting in each map being georeferenced as closely to its appropriate location as possible.
