  • Georeferencing Method

    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Georeferenced to an offset of 4 miles south of Isherton in Guyana. Used Google Maps - Earth View to locate Isherton in Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo, Guyana. Used the Google Maps - What's Here Tool to find the coordinates of the approximate geographic center of Isherton (2.322672, -59.382462). Because there are no obvious spatial boundaries for the village of Isherton, used the Google Maps – Measure Distance Tool to approximate the linear extent by measuring from the selected coordinates to the nearest named village, Burisanawa Village, then halving this distance (4.235 km). Input coordinate source (locality description), coordinates (2.322672, -59.382462), datum (WGS84), coordinate precision (0.00001 degrees), offset direction (S), offset distance (4 mi), extent of named place (2.631507 mi), measurement error (0.00621371 mi), and distance precision (1 mi) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius (according to the Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Offset: Offset at a heading). Converted final uncertainty radius to meters.
