Merged/Geo-rectified Maps


The Purpose of this Post is to locate the Position of the Eruptions more Precisely by Merging with a base map!


The DMA map(from National Land Survey Iceland), and the 2 Imageries (from Google and NASA) are Merged (Geo-rectified) to locate the fissure and the developments more precisely. The maps are Merged using GIS software with Non-earth coordinates (XY)!

The following snaps are the results.
