I GBIF Georeferencing Biodiversity Databases Workshop

description 
This was the first global workshop on georeferencing techniques applied to biodiversity databases organised by GBIF, in collaboration with HerpNET. This series of workshop intends to increase the fitness for use of the biodiversity data available in the GBIF Network, adding detailed geospatial information to those records that lack them.
audience 
34 people from 11 countries/organisations: Belgium, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Netherlands, Poland, Spain and United States (10 people).
This workshop was targeted at participants who were actively involved with geo-referencing activities and particularly those who would be in a position to pass the knowledge they gain at this workshop on to others.
