This tool was developed by CRIA with the aim of helping biological collections in validating geographic data. By entering data on geographic coordinates the tool returns information about the point, such as the name of the country, state or administrative region, and the name of the municipality or district. If the point is in the sea, the tool will calculate the distance to the closest coast, indicating the name of the country.
The database used is GADM-Global Administrative Areas, a product of the BioGeoMancer project.
