iDigBio GWG first Train the Trainers Workshop:
Expanding the Biodiversity Natural History Collections Georeferencing Community

October 8 - 12, 2012 Gainesville, Florida
iDigBio Offices, 105 Classroom Building

The Georeferencing Working Group at iDigBio is pleased to announce our first "Train-the-Trainers" Georeferencing Workshop for Thematic Collections Networks (TCNs) and others in engaged in the digitization of biological collections in the United States. The workshop will cover tools and techniques used to correctly interpret textual location data into spatial descriptions that can be used in mapping and analyses. Participants will learn the fundamentals of georeferencing best practices through a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises, including paper maps, the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator, GEOLocate, BioGeomancer and online exercises. Special attention will be paid to the specific and unique georeferencing needs of the TCNs and their digitization activities.

The Train the Trainers Workshop is organized by the iDigBio Georeferencing Working Group and hosted by the Integrated Digitized Biocollections (iDigBio) HUB, a National Resource Center at the University of Florida and Florida State University. The workshop is supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation’s Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections (ADBC) Programs.

Reading Materials and Resources:

  1. Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide
  2. Guide to Best Practices for Georeferencing - Chapman, A.D. and J. Wieczorek (eds). 2006
  3. iDigBio Georeferencing Wiki
  4. HerpNET Georeferencing Resources
  5. Pre Workshop Survey Questions iDigBio Asked
  6. Group Notes - Take Workshop Notes Together Here
  7. [Post - Workshop Survey Questions]
  8. Got a Georeferencing Question? Post it at the iDigBio Georeferencing Forum

Bring your Datasets and Laptops:

Participants are strongly encouraged to bring representative datasets from their collections that need georeferencing to expose everyone to the variety of locality data georeferencing issues and give the experts and participants a chance to work together to address any challenges.

Participants must bring their own laptops and everyone will have wired access to facilitate the best possible workshop experience.

Wireless Access Issues:

Those needing wireless access will need a user name and password and will also need to install a piece of software to make wireless connectivity possible. Kevin Love, iDigBio IT, will be on hand to help with this. Wireless_System

Overview:

Biological specimens vouchered in natural history collections document the historical and modern occurrence of plant and animal species--and most of what we know about the diversity and distribution of life on earth. This workshop addresses a need in the natural history collections community to expand the number of individuals available and able to train natural history collections students, volunteers and staff how to turn text-based locality data into the best georeference possible.

Teaching those with georeferencing experience to teach others begins with the recognition of differences in locality data that exist between specimen preparation types due to their physical properties and discipline-specific handling, collecting and preservation methods, curatorial and conservation practice, storage environments, data conceptualizations, and data label techniques. Georeferencing locality data recorded on tags tied to vertebrate skins, on labels encircling snakes submerged in solutions of alcohol, on the lilliputian labels of pinned insects, and on the large, verbose labels glued on flat sheets of plant specimens, presents specific constraints and opportunities in each case for efficient georeferencing.

Goals of the Workshop:

1. To teach the best effective practices for georeferencing biological specimens for the purpose of creating georeferenced digital database records for publication and for new research applications of the biological, geospatial, and temporal information associated with specimens.
2. To discuss and dissect the dimensions of specific georeferencing needs based on the discipline involved and how to teach others the georeferencing nuances for a given collection type.
3. To engage the community in further dissemination of georeferencing skills and best practices.

Workshop Objectives:

  1. To train a group of professionals from the biological sciences to become georeferencing trainers, via:
    a. Exploration of and experience with the key concepts and best practices of georeferencing using paper maps, online resources, semi-automated, and collaborative tools.
    b. Training in workflows, processes, and techniques needed to prepare data sets for georeferencing and improving data quality and fitness for use.
    c. Discussion and insight into how to plan and prepare for the presentation of a georeferencing workshop for others in the biodiversity and digitization communities.
  2. To provide georeferencing support to Thematic Collections Networks involved in the digitization of data for the Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections program of the National Science Foundation through:
    a. Identification and examination of potential roadblocks and impediments to the the georeferencing process.
    b. Provision of solutions and recommended workflows, processes, and tools to meet the goals of the TCNs.
    c. Discussion of the inputs and costs necessary to create successful and efficient georeferencing projects at scale.
  3. To establish an updating resource for the TCNs and the broad community within the biodiversity sciences, via:
    a.Creation of a roster of georeferencing “experts” able and willing to provide to support to individuals and groups within their geographic region and professional discipline.
    b. A resource for said “experts” to share their experiences (successes, failures, and recommendations) for the benefit of the broad community.

Desired Outcomes:

1. Participants’ georeferencing skills are enhanced after the workshop. (leave knowing more than when they arrived).
2. Each participant presents a georeferenced data set at the end of the workshop to the group.
3. Participants provide feedback - for the further development of this course.
4. Participants plan / outline a georeferencing workshop - share the plan with the group.
5. Participants share their future plans for when and where they will conduct their first training.
(post to iDigBio)
6. Participants fill out a post-workshop survey to assist in evaluating the workshop and contribute suggestions for the next workshop.
7. iDigBio Georeferencing Working Group utilizes outcomes / survey results to help shape future efforts and the next Train the Trainers Georeferencing Workshop.
8. Report back to NSF about survey results and workshop outcomes for future planning.
