GEOLocate

GEOLocate es una plataforma web disponible también para escritorio para la georreferenciación de localidades de colecciones de Historia Natural. Se trata de una aplicación capaz de entender las cadenas de texto que contienen las descripciones de las localidades y asignarles o proponer unas coordenadas geográficas.

Conversor de coordenadas de Canadensys

Herramienta web que permite convertir coordenadas geográficas sexagesimales (ej., 45°32'25"N, 129°40'31"W) en geográficas decimales (ej., 45.5402778, -129.6752778), formato compatible con GBIF.

Google Fusion Tables

It's not a data quality tool in itself, but some of its features can make data quality assesment easier: • Allows easy map (or charts) creation from tabular data • Easy hosting / online sharing • Geocoding...

OpenStreetMap

It can be a source of geographic data, to be used as "map backgrounds" for display of data, analysis and publication. Positive side: it can be used almost everywhere (technically: export in various format - license: very liberal). Commercial providers such as google maps put a lot of usage restrictions. Negative side: variable data quality (but sometimes very good), ala wikipedia

Open Refine

I presented it as a source of geographic data, to be used as "map backgrounds" for display of data, analysis, publication. positive: • Can be used almost everywhere (technically: export in various format - license: very liberal). Commercial providers such as google maps put a lot of usage restrictions. negative: • Variable data quality (but sometimes very good), ala wikipedia.

Diva GIS

Simple but very good generic GIS software, very useful to biodiversity scientists in general to get a good view on the spatial aspects of their data. Also, it is really oriented towards environmental issues and modelling, so it can at the same time stay relatively easy to use and provide advanced features in these topics. It's also a freeware. Windows only, but seems possible to use it on a mac using wine/winebottler. Free spatial data and help forum are also provided on their website.

QuantumGIS

An interesting alternative to Diva GIS... More generic/ less oriented to biology, but : Open source, truly multi-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux), development evolves very well and quickly and extensible / interesting plugin systems.
