Once museum specimen collection data has been enhanced outside the collection database, how can we get the improved data back into the local collection database? FishNet2 used a collaborative georeferencing model and software to georeference over 282,199 distinct localities in 1.5 years. What are / were the challenges? What was simple? For those planning such projects, what does FishNet2 recommend, from the beginning of such a project, to make this re-integration step as seamless as possible. Are there specific tools / software that need better integration to make this type of workflow easier in the future? Please join us for a presentation followed by a discussion.
