Georeferencing - Summary
- Georeferencing is the process of describing (or locating) entities in a GIS coverage.
Database attributes can only be displayed accurately in GIS if they apply to each spatial entity in their entirety.
Defining spatially determinant waterbodies allows water quality data to be linked to a GIS coverage and displayed accurately. Existing systems with Spatial Indeterminacy can often be modified to work with a GIS simply by creating surface water entities with unique identifiers and homogenous attribute information.
