    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Georeferenced to 1131 km along Cuiabá-Santarém road (BR-163) in Pará, Brazil. Used Google Maps - Earth View to locate road BR-163 at the approximate geographic center of the city of Cuiabá. Beginning at this location, used the Google Maps - Measure Distance Tool to measure approximately 1131 km (1131.0 km) toward the city of Santarém; used the Google Maps - What's Here Tool to find the coordinates of the offset along the road. Used the Google Maps - Measure Distance Tool again to find the linear extent of the starting location, Cuiabá, by measuring from the approximate geographic center of the city to the farthest extent of the city. Input coordinates, linear extent (13.350 km), measurement error (.025 km), and distance precision (1 km) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius. Note: The coordinates are located very nearby Igarapé Natal, agreeing with the locality description.
