Geocoding genomic databases using GBIF
AbstractMany nucleotide sequences in the publicly available genomics databases lack spatial information, such as the latitude and longitude coordinates for the locality where the sample for sequencing was taken. In this note I discuss several approaches to geocoding sequence records. The first method uses the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF: https://gbif.org) as a gazetter. The availability of a simple full text search across GBIF data makes it possible to rapidly geocodedoi:10.1101/469650 fatcat:o4jjs7ni3nadpm4x5wdge7gjee
