  • Georeferencing Method

    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Georeferenced to the geographic center of the city of Monte Dourado which sits along Rio Jarí in Para, Brazil. Using Google Maps - Satellite View, located the approximate geographic center of the city of Monte Dourado. Used Canadensys Lat/Long Crosshairs to find the coordinates. Because Monte Dourado does not have defined spatial boundaries, used Distance Measurement Tool (Google Maps) to measure from the selected coordinates to the approximate geographic center of the nearest named place (within the state of Pará), the village of Munguba; halved this distance to approximate the linear extent of Monte Dourado. Input coordinates, linear extent (6487.75 m.), and measurement error (.01 m.) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius.
