    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Presidente Medici is located in the state of Rondônia and road BR-230 does not come close to this area. Georeferenced to 10 km west of Rurópolis on BR-230 in Mun. Rurópolis, Pará. Used Google Maps - Earth View to locate BR-230 in the city of Rurópolis. Used the Google Maps - Measure Distance Tool to measure approximate 10 km (10.0 km) west along the road toward the city of Itaituba; used 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 measure the linear extent of the starting the location, the city of Rurópolis, by measuring from the approximate geographic center of the city to the farthest extent of the city area. Input coordinates, linear extent (2710.0 m), and measurement error (50 m), and distance precision (10 km) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius.
