I am new to GeoNode, but have really enjoyed getting to know the software. My plan for the next several months (grad school thesis work)
is to create an extension of/modification to GeoNode that will allow a
user to manually georeference an uploaded scan of a map (Document),
which will turn it into a proper Layer. There are a few other
browser-based georeferencing apps out there already (MapWarperhttp://mapwarper.net/, Georeferencerhttps://www.georeferencer.com/)
but I've chosen GeoNode as the base for my own attempt at a new one. Is
anyone aware of other similar work like this that has been done on
GeoNode in the past?
I hope to be able to contribute to the community as well, so I also just want to say I'm looking forward to getting involved!
