Georeference Verification Status: A categorical description of the extent to which the georeference has been verified to represent the best possible spatial description. Recommended best practice is to use a controlled vocabulary.

Notes: The recommended controlled vocabulary includes:

verified by data custodian
verified by contributor

The data contributor is the agent who participated in the Event that produced the Location. Verification by the contributor means that the georeference as recorded is correct and as specific as it can be based on the contributor's personal knowledge of the event and location.

The data custodian is the agent responsible for the management of the primary source of the record. Verification by the data custodian means that the georeference as recorded is correct and as specific as it can be based on the all of the resources at the disposal of the agent (field notes, maps, labels) in the absence of verification by the contributor.

All other georeferences, those produced without consulting all existing primary sources, should be "unverified".

See dcterms:Location for further discussion of georeference terms.

Example(s): "requires verification", "verified by collector", "verified by curator"
