Georeference something means to define its existence in physical space. That is, establishing its location in terms of map projections or coordinate systems. The term is used both when establishing the relation between raster or vector images and coordinates but also when determining the spatial location of other geographical features.

Georeference something means to define its existence in physical space. That is, establishing its location in terms of map projections or coordinate systems.

The term is used both when establishing the relation between raster or vector images and coordinates but also when determining the spatial location of other geographical features.

Examples would include establishing the correct position of an aerial photograph within a map or finding the geographical coordinates of a place name or street address.

This procedure is thus imperative to data modeling in the field of Geographic information systems (GIS) and other cartographic methods.
