MaNIS/HerpNet/ORNIS georeferencing calculator

This tool enables the user to figure out coordinates and errors based on a named place and offsets, or just to calculate the error if you already have the coordinates for the complete locality description.

Abstract 

The Georeferencing Calculator is a java applet created as a tool to aid in the georeferencing of descriptive localities such as those found in museum-based natural history collections. It was specifically designed for the Mammal Networked Information System (MaNIS) Project and has been adopted as well by HerpNet and ORNIS. The application makes calculations using the methods described in the Georeferencing Guidelines available at http://manisnet.org/GeorefGuide.html.
