GEOREFERENCING OF PLACES OF COLLECTIONS BIOLOGICAL
The georeferencing of locations is the allocation of geographic coordinates to the textual description of a site (Proctor, Blum, Chaplin, 2001; Wieczorek, 2001).
The georeferencing department of Conabio adopted the methodology established by Wieczorek (2001), which was developed within the project 'Mammal Networked Information System' (MaNIS) conducted by the Museum of vertebrates at the University of Berkeley. This methodology was reviewed in detail for the purpose of bringing proceedings, the cartographic material and nomenclatural specific in order to integrated processes systematized.
