Welcome to the Collaborative Georeferencing Data Management Portal for GEOLocate.

You may use this the web based portal to:

  • Set up and administer georeferencing projects (i.e. communities)
  • Join existing communities
  • Upload specimen occurrence records for georeferencing
  • Customize georeferencing options
  • Track georeferencing progress
  • Manage users, roles, and work assignments
  • Download results

Once a community has been set up, you and your georeferencing technicians may use the GEOLocate Collaborative georeferencing Web Client to evaluate the results of automated georeferencing making adjustments as necessary.

One of the advantages of collaborative georeferencing is that we analyse your data for similarities to form groupings that can be evaluated at one time as opposed to one record at a time. among records allowing
