  • Georeferencing Method

    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Georeferenced to 50 km. along Rio Cuieiras, a tributary of Rio Negro. Using Google Maps, located Rio Cuieiras in Amazonas, Brazil. Used measurement tool to measure approximately 50 km. (50.0004 km.) along the river from the confluence of Rio Cuieiras and Rio Negro. Used Canadensys Lat/Long Crosshairs to find the coordinates, on adjacent land. Since there are no named places nearby, used measurement tool (Google Maps) again to find linear extent by measuring the junction of Rio Cuieiras and Rio Negro, then halving this extent. Input coordinates, linear extent (1125.75 m.), measurement error (.01 m.), and distance precision (100 m.) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius. Rio Cuieiras seems to flood and meander a lot around this location; path was measured along the widest sections of this river.
