automated georeferencing biogeomancer
Automated Georeferencing: Biogeomancer
  • For HerpNET best application is for US localities
  • Can make extents available (for US, by Jan)
  • Eventually would include maximum error automatically
  • Could provide input/output in format friendly to HerpNET’s database fields
  • Would still have to be verified by georeferencers at each institution
news from nsf
News from NSF
  • Standard supplemental funds not available
  • REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates)
  • Collaborative REU Site grant
  • Need to have association with a university
  • Have to provide a research experience, possibly workshops, ArcView training or museum studies
  • Each institution would write a budget justification and description, submitting them separately with KU as lead institution
  • KU will supply major text for grant and link them
  • Due 15 Sep 2004, write for 3 years
