  • Georeferencing Method

    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. The construction of the Tucuruí Dam, which spans across Rio Tocantins in Tucuruí, Pará, caused the area south of the Dam to become flooded and a new highway BR-422 was constructed to the west of the old flooded BR-422 (La Rovere, E.L. and Mendes, F.E. 2000. TucuruÌ Hydropower Complex, Brazil, A WCD case study prepared as an input to the World Commission on Dams, Cape Town, Accessed: 14 November 2013). Assumed the "new road serving fazendas" to be present day BR-422. Georeferenced to 25 km. along BR-422 (Tucuruí-Novo Repartimento road) in município Tucuruí. Using Google Maps - Satellite View, located the beginning of road BR-422, where Av. Raimundo Veridiano Cardoso turns into BR-422 at the approximate geographic center of the city of Tucuruí. Starting at this location (beginning of road BR-422), used Distance Measurement Tool (Google Maps) to measure approximately 25 km. (25.0014 km.) south along this road toward Novo Repartimento. Used Canadensys Lat/Long Crosshairs to find the coordinates at this offset along BR-422. Used Distance Measurement Tool (Google Maps) again to measure the approximate linear extent of the city of Tucuruí (the starting location). Input coordinates, linear extent (12326.9 m.), measurement error (.1 m.), and distance precision (100 m.) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius.
