Hi all;

We are in the process of database cataloguing many of our natural history collections here at the ROM with the goal of making this data available via The Species Analyst.  One of the areas that requires attention is the georeferencing of collecting localities.  For some disciplines, georeferencing is simply done with the aid of topographical maps, others are able to use Natural Resources Canada's Canadian Geographical Names website.  Can anyone recommend some other more efficient methods to assist us in our endeavours?

Many thanks
