SoRo TCN Georeferencing Workshop
This workshop is for Southern Rocky Mountain (SoRo) TCN only. In this workshop we will cover topics including spatial acumen (datum, projections coordinate types), an overview of best practices, minimum data standards (fields to fill out how to derive uncertainty and when not to georeference) and move into hands on work georeferencing SoRo specimens.
This workshop will be broken into three shorter sessions that will occur 17th, 19th and 24th of September from 3-5 mountain.
Day 1 September 17th 3-5 pm Introduction to spatial concepts (Datum, coordinate types, projections) Data quality and standards for the SoRo project Quick guide to georeferencing Uncertainty values
Day 2 September 19th 3-5 pm Tips for recording better data in the field Georeferencing Software (National Geographic TOPO!, GeoLocate) Using GeoLocate Types of Georeferences with examples to geocode
Day 3 September 24th 3-5 pm Bring your data

Georeferencing Quick Guide
I would suggest printing this out while we work through georeferences
Biogeomancers Guider to Best Practices in Georeferencing
This is worth a full read with the goal of familiarity. Lots of examples, but mostly we end up using the Quick Guide.
Georeferencing Calculator (Uncertainty)original Biogeomancer version is no longer online. http://18.104.22.168/sigcalc/source/gci2.html
