  • Georeferencing Method

    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Referred to Wikimapia.org for additional locality information for Corcovado (http://wikimapia.org/2290868/Corcovado-Mountain, accessed: 12/3/2015). Georeferenced to an elevation of 570 m nearest to the approximate geographic center of the Corcovado mountain in Rio de Janeiro. Used the reference material and Google Maps – Earth and Terrain Views to locate Corcovado. Located the approximate geographic center of Corcovado. Used the Google Maps – What's Here Tool to find the coordinates at elevation 570 m nearest to the approximate geographic center of the mountain. Used the Google Maps – Measure Distance Tool to approximate the linear extent by measuring from the selected coordinates to the farthest extent of the 570 m elevation contour line of the mountain (using Terrain View to determine, to: -22.951031, -43.213567). Input coordinates, coordinate precision (.00001 degrees), coordinate source (locality description), datum (WGS84), linear extent (179.68 m), and measurement error (5 m) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius (according to the Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Named Place: Bounded Area).
