The workshop will cover tools and techniques used to correctly interpret textual location data into spatial descriptions that can be used in mapping and analyses. Participants will learn the fundamentals of georeferencing best practices through a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises, including paper maps, the MaNIS Georeferencing Calculator, GEOLocate, and online exercises. Special attention will be paid to the specific and unique georeferencing needs and workflows of the TCNs and their digitization activities.
