The Georeferencing Calculator (Wieczorek & Wieczorek 2020) described in this document is a tool created to aid in the georeferencing of descriptive localities such as those found in museum-based natural history collections. It was originally designed for the Mammal Networked Information System (MaNIS) and has been widely adopted in other large-scale collaborative georeferencing projects to supplement semi-automated georeferencing tools. The application makes calculations using the theory given in Georeferencing Best Practices (Chapman & Wieczorek 2020), derived from the earlier MaNIS/HerpNET/ORNIS Georeferencing Guidelines (Wieczorek 2001), and The pointradius method for georeferencing locality descriptions and calculating associated uncertainty (Wieczorek et al. 2004). Specific methods for calculating a wide variety of examples of the distinct locality types are given in Georeferencing Quick Reference Guide ([Bloom] Zermoglio et al. 2020).
