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
