Georeferencing Method: Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012 (Georeferenced to the geographic center of Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi in Belém, Para. Using Google Maps - Satellite View, located Museu Paraense Emilio Goeldi. Used Distance Measurement Tool (Google Maps) to find total extent of the campus; halved this distance to approximate the location of the geographic center. Used Canadensys Lat/Long Crosshairs to find the coordinates of the geographic center of the Museum's campus. Used Distance Measurement Tool (Google Maps) again to find linear extent by measuring from the selected coordinates to the farthest extent of the campus. Used linear extent as uncertainty radius.)
