Queensland Museum provider for OZCAM Queensland Museum collections date back to the 1860s. Many early specimen records contained incomplete or inaccurate spatial information and in such cases, no interpretation of accuracy has been applied herein. When the museum commenced databasing in the mid-1980s, terms were introduced to represent assumed accuracies of collecting information. The terms below are a refinement of disparate lists and have been used for mapping to the Darwin Core field 'coordinateUncertaintyInMeters'. The table below shows how the terms are represented in metres of accuracy and the assumptions made in assigning these values. Term coordinateUncertainty InMeters Assumptions Surveyed (ground control) 1 International Terrestrial Reference Frame is used for ground survey mapping Google Earth 20 Latitude and longitude taken from Google Earth by positioning cursor over land feature GPS reading 50 In-field GPS reading, but correct datum is not assumed Collector's data 500 Generalised - usually legacy data, pre-GPS Centrepoint of geographic unit 1000 Centroid values used when no other, more accurate method has been recorded, (e.g. "Fraser Island"). Gazetteer 1000 Gazeteer values used when no other, more accurate method has been recorded,(e.g. "Bundaberg, Queensland"). Geographic location given 1000 Gazeteer values used when no other, more accurate method has been recorded, (e.g. "Blue Lake").
