Metigo MAP is a graphic software created specifically for
conservation documentation of both 2 and 3-dimensional surfaces.  It
can be used as an alternative to advanced graphic software such as
GIS and CAD and it also comprises certain features of raster
programs that are commonly used by conservators. An introduction to
how the software may be used will be given by Julia Burdajewicz. The
lecture will include the presentation and discussion of the
characteristic features of the software such as rectifying images,
overlay of images, the use of drawing tools, methods of mapping of
phenomena, surface calculations and the use of legends. No RSVP
required.

This short workshop will serve as a basic introduction to the use of
Metigo MAP software in graphic conservation documentation.
Participants will be provided with a 1-month trial license of the
software in advance of the workshop. The workshop will require
participants to bring their own PC laptop computers with the trial
software installed. Case study images will be provided on CD and
will then be demonstrated and discussed. The participants will be
walked through the principal steps of creating a mapping project in
Metigo MAP, such as rectification and overlay of images, creating
and importing mapping classes and categories, creating legends and
exporting the result of the mapping into an image file. Handouts of
a brief manual will be provided.

This brief workshop is free. If you would like to attend, please
send a brief statement of interest to Mary Tait <taitm<-at->si<.>edu> by
