Assesses the quality of the geo-referencing of the passport data (collecting sites)
This tool allows users to determine whether the geo-referencing of the collecting sites contained in the passport data (in the form of site description and/or directly as coordinates) is as accurate and consistent as possible. To do this, the tool considers three parameters of quality (COORQUAL, LOCALQUAL and SUITQUAL) that evaluate factors such as the intrinsic quality of the coordinates, the appropriateness of the site for the plants growth (cultivated or wild) and the concordance between the site description and the assigned coordinates. The parameter that summarizes the three aforementioned assessments is called TOTALQUAL and, on a scale of 0-100 (100 being the best quality) this parameter is called TOTALQUAL100.
