Georeferencing Working Group
Overview of the Georeferencing Working Group
The Georeferencing Working Group (GWG) currently consists of 11 members from across the biodiversity natural history collections community from east coast to west coast. If you'd like to get involved, simply contact any member of the iDigBio GWG.
As one of our first projects, there's a workshop coming up for those with georeferencing experience who would like to learn how train others to georeference. Check out the details at Train the Trainers workshop October 8 - 12, 2012
At the same time, we're working on collating georeferencing materials and links to materials here in the Wiki Pages for use by the entire community.
Find out what's out there to help you georeference your natural history collection specimen data. See the Georeferencing Resources put together by the GWG and the broader community.
Notes from the Beginning
From the first iDigBio 2011 Summit, the GWG formed and first met at the iDigBio IT Standards Workshop where the group compiled an initial list of activities and goals for the GWG.

Theseitems have been prioritized and presented to the iDigBio steering committee for feedback. You can read the feedback here:
