In general, these processes are used to improve the planimetric accuracy of features from a feature class. In this recipe, we will learn how to adjust a feature class using an affine transformation. The concepts and recommendations from the Georeferencing raster data recipe of Chapter 3, Working with CRS, are still valid.

Getting ready

In the previous recipe, we added data from the .dxf source datasets to the VeloGIS geodatabase as feature classes. The vectors that came from the RoadCenterLine.dxf dataset have a local cartesian coordinate system ...
