  • Georeferencing Method

    Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Version 2012. Although the district/town of Itabela is located in the vicinity of Eunápolis, it is not located within the boundaries of the municipality of Eunápolis as is suggested by the location description for this record, and others in the same collector sequence. Proceeded with georeferencing despite this inconsistency because Itabela is so close to being within the bounds of Eunápolis,. Georeferenced to the approximate center of the town of Itabela, in Mun. Itabela, Bahia. Using Google Maps - Satellite View, located the town of Itabela. Using Google Maps - What's Here tool, found coordinates (final) for the approximate geographic center of the town of Itabela. Because this locality description is vague, calculated the linear extent of Itabela as an undefined area, by using Google Maps – Measure Distance tool to measure a straight line from the selected coordinates at the center of Itabela to the center of the nearest comparable named place, the district/town of Guaratinga (-16.582468, -39.781745), then dividing that distance by 2. Input linear extent (11925.5 m), coordinate precision (0.00001 degrees) and measurement error (0.5 m) into the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator to find the uncertainty radius (according to the Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide, Named Place: Undefined area).
