Biodiversity georeferencing training workshop by SABIF

Georeferencing is the process of recording the ‘where’ of primary biodiversity data. This is valuable information because it gives geographical context to digitized specimens; offers insight into the range and occurring locations of a given species; aids collectors in the field in locating relevant specimens and facilitates the application of many useful tools, from species dot maps to full GIS analysis.

This course will be presented by Burgert Muller (KwaZulu-Natal Museum), Connal Eardley (Agricultural Research Council), Sherwyn Mack (South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity) and Pieter Winter (SANBI).
