Overlay 2 maps

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have two maps that I want to overlay. getting them into new layers is easy what I am having issue with is the georeferencing of the maps. Since they are from different distances getting them to be perfectly aligned on each other is very difficult. Is there a way to do this better? Like pick a point then pick its corresponding point on the layer?

Thanks in advance.

Import both images, black-and-white top layer.

Layers > Import from File...

Press Esc to deselect.

Center the color image, using Align Object plugin.

Set the black-and-white top layer Opacity to about 160.

Reposition the top layer with the Move Selected Pixels tool.

It will need to be rotated clockwise slightly, also.
