hi all,
 
i am totally new to gis application. i am desperately in need of help!
currently, my research group wants to support a community with a collaborative map tool. the community does not have digital maps whatsoever, and they only have scanned image maps. i was told to use geotools2 to see if we can render the image maps and *somehow* make them zoomable, pannable, and can edit map info. (such as removing a road, or adding a stream).  my big question is, is this something doable? as i am not familiar with geotools and gis at all, turning image maps to something like gis maps seems not reasonable to me... your advice is highly appreciated!!!!
 
thanks,
 
regards,
lu
