10/2012 iDigBio's first Train-the-Trainers Georeferencing Workshop This "train-the-trainers" workshop is designed to provide the community with more trainers across the USA available to train others to georeference specimen label locality data. Participants are expected to organize and facilitate at least one multi-day georeferencing workshop targeted at the TCNs and other digitization projects of which the participants are representative. The workshop is an intensive 5-day event in Gainesville, Florida October 8 - 12, 2012. The participant list is posted (see column to the right).
