  • Georeferencing Method

    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Georeferenced to the approximate geographic center of the city of São Leopoldo, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil; taking into account the word "vicinity" in the locality description. Used Google Maps – Earth and Map Views to locate the city of São Leopoldo. Used the Google Maps – What's Here Tool to find the coordinates of the approximate geographic center of the city. Used the Google Maps – Measure Distance Tool to find the linear extent by measuring from the selected coordinates to the farthest extent of the city (at: -29.808369, -51.081296; spatial boundary provided by Google Maps). Because of the added uncertainty of the word near in the locality description, doubled the linear extent measurement. Input coordinates, coordinate precision (.00001 degrees), coordinate source (locality description), datum (WGS84), linear extent (17500 m), and measurement error (5 m) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius (according to the Biogeomancer Guide to Best Practices for Georeferencing, Version Aug. 2006, Near a Feature).
