6. Webinar ideas? Share your georeferencing challenges / experiences / workflows?

December 8, 2015 - Jessica is giving a webinar about the problems faced when georeferencing paleontological collections. How to georeference using polygons (the MYost method). Batch georeferencing?

7. Georeferencing Workflows

Discussed to make this a part of item #6 using the "this is how I work" format as per http://lifehacker.com/im-jane-mcgonigal-game-designer-and-author-and-this-i-1727032851

Marcy will put together a loose format and will send to Dave for feedback. Marcy and Jessica are willing to put together a combo written/webinar presentation dealing with specific georeferencing issues they have identified as needing additional clarification.

Deb can post to the Listserv once we have a format.
