  • Georeferencing Method

    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Because a point 5 km due west from the city of Porto Seguro would not be found along the specified road, assumed that the locality description is referring to 5 km distance along the road in the generally westward direction. Therefore, georeferenced to 5 km along the road connecting the city of Porto Seguro to the city of Eunapolis, BR 367, in Mun. Porto Seguro, Bahia. Using Google Maps - Satellite View, and a paper map of the area (Superintendência do Desenvolvimento do Nordeste. "Porto Seguro" [Map]. Mapas da Região Nordeste do Brasil – 1:100,000. Convênio SUDENE – Governo do Estado da Bahia. SUDENE, Recife, PE, Brasil. 1977) located the city of Porto Seguro, the city of Eunapolis, and BR 367, and selected the point along BR 367 closest to the approximate geographic center of the city of Porto Seguro according to the boundaries shown on the paper map (-16.4420124 -39.0631771), which are more likely to accurately portray the center and span of the named place at the time of collection, in 1988. Beginning at this chosen point, used Distance Measurement Tool (Google Maps) to measure approximately 5 km (5.00005 km) along BR-367 towards Eunapolis. Using Canadensys Lat/Long Crosshairs, found coordinates for the offset. Using Distance Measurement Tool again, found the linear extent of the starting location of the offset, the city of Porto Seguro, by measuring from the selected coordinates along BR-367 near the historic center of the city to the farthest extent of the historic city limits. Input coordinates, linear extent (2.92248 km), measurement error (0.0005 km), and distance precision (1 km) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius (according to the Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Offset: Offset along a path).
