Workshop Summary

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 Georeferencing Software (National Geographic TOPO!, GeoLocate) Using GeoLocate Types of Georeferences with examples to geocode
