  • Georeferencing Method

    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Georeferenced to approximately 1305 km along Cuiabá-Santarém road (BR-163). Using Google Maps - Satellite View, located road BR-163 at the approximate geographic center of the city of Cuiabá, Mato Grosso. Beginning at this location, used the Distance Measurement Tool (Google Maps) to measure approximately 1305 km (1305.00 km) along BR-163 toward Santarém, Pará. Used Canadensys Lat/Long Crosshairs to find the coordinates of the offset along the road. Used the Distance Measurement Tool (Google Maps) again to find linear extent of the starting location, the city of Cuiabá, by measuring from the approximate geographic center of the city to the farthest extent of the city. Input coordinates, linear extent (13.78 km), measurement error (.0025 km), and distance precision (1 km) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius.
