1:50 000 Scale Colour Raster - 20km x 20km Tiles
Geo-referencing files allow tiles of map data to be located in their correct geographical position when loaded into a geographical information system (GIS).This is achieved by loading in files alongside the data files that contain the National Grid corner coordinates for each tile. This is especially useful if more than one tile of data is being loaded at once, as it allows for a true geographical depiction of the data.
About geo-referencingWhen raster data is supplied or you download it, it is not georeferenced in any way. This means that tiles will not display in a geographical relationship to each other when loaded into a GIS.
Below there are TIFF World Files (TFW) that can be used to geo-reference raster data in ESRI® ArcView® and ArcInfo® together with TAB files for use with MapInfo®.
TIP: The georeferencing files should be saved in the same directory as the files of the map tiles themselves.
