Recrification, warping, georeferencing

Scanned maps can be projected onto today's maps to be able to use them as layers in different applications. This tool would make available a control point interface, which distorts the map image to match the base map.

Rectifying or georeferencing map files is accessed via the image actions menu or the Image viewer Actions menu.

The layout of the tool is made uniform across tools.
