2nd E-Learning Georeferencing Workshop using GEOLocate

Subscription period is now open for the upcoming Online Workshop on Georeferencing Natural History Specimens using GEOLocate, an electronic georeferencing solution designed to facilitate the task of assigning geographic coordinates to the locality data associated with natural history collections. It has been shown that the process of georeferencing is an activity that substantially increases the value of the stored data and its potential uses (see "Guide to Best Practices for Georeferencing" published by GBIF). In addition, it is necessary to get deep into these georeferencing processes, including those that are made retrospectively. Students will have access to cartography and they will be provided with an introduction to the different options of the GEOLocate platform.

The workshop will take place in October 8-29, 2014. Applications should be submitted via email to by September 22, 2014.
