Dear All,

I scanned an old map and georeferenced it with Qgis (gdal).The result is ok - nearly. When I compare in QMapshack the grids UTM32 - printed grid on the scan and the QSM Grid - they are a little bit different, maybe 50 m in X Y. The geotiff is inexact - I checked it. My question is if I can finetune the geotif coordinates so that the are exactly congruent to OSM-Grid ?

Here's the output from gdalinfo:

Please explain what the "QSM Grid" and the "OSM-Grid" are.

Hi,

I am referring to the grid for UMT which I can choose for an OSM map. In a second layer I use my scanned map which has a UMT grid as well. But the grid of my scanned map is not congruent and displaced a little bit.

Thank's a lot for your answer !

Kind regards

And what is UMT?

Hi,

oh sorry I mean UTM not UMT ! Universal Transverse Mercator

Kind regards

What tool/website/program are you using to display the OSM map with an UTM grid?

I use Qmapshack with a .vrt file which is related to the mentioned raster geotiff.

So if I understand you correctly, the problem is simply that the georeferencing didn't work as well as you would have expected. (This is not an OpenStreetMap specific question really and should have been asked in a more general GIS forum.) This is normal; the quality of the result depends on the quality of your scan, which algorithm you choose, how many GCPs you set, and how precise you are in setting them.

If you believe that simply shifting the GeoTIFF will help, then the easiest option is to use gdal_edit.py to override the geographic bounds of the image.

Hi,

thank you so much, gdal_edit is exactly what I'm looking for ! I used gdal_edit.py -a_ullr 7.610300 51.326280 7.961292 51.172818 testmod.tif

Kind regards
