Dear HerpNET participants:
Please read the following very important and pertinent message about
georeferencing and the end of the HerpNET project.
For your convenience, we are changing how we repatriate the data from the
Returning of completed georeferencing files:
We need all georeferencing to be completed by April 1, 2008, with completed
files sent to me and Heather ( hconstable at gmail.com).The grant ends next
August, and we need some time to check all the data and compile it for
repatriation before this deadline. These institutions are still
georeferencing and should complete and send their files by this deadline
AUM,PSM, FMNH, INHS, MCZ, MVZ, KU, USNM, RMMU, ROM, LACM, UCM, Yale, UF,
UGA, UTA, MSB.
Repatriation of data from georeferencing into your database:
Because it was difficult to repatriate files in small batches, and many of
you were unable to do so, we will be making a single, large file of all
georeferences for each institution. This should make repatriating much
easier for you. This file, for each institution, will include everything
from the beginning of the project that should be put back into your
database. In order to do this properly and assess which data has already
been repatriated into your catalog, or which original localities you may
have changed since 2003, I will need copies of your databases again. This
includes all locality information and associated catalog numbers.
I will need the NEW copy of your database with all locality information and
associated catalog numbers by April 1, 2008.
I will be using this to compare the data we georeferenced for you, to make
sure that the localities are the same and that the file of completed
georeferences I send you is accurate and matches your current database
(since we have been georeferencing from copies of your database from 2003).
If you have any questions about this information, please contact me.
And thanks to everyone for your georeferencing efforts,
Carol Spencer, Heather Constable, Dave Wake and Linda Trueb
