Excerpt from correspondence with JW 4 Nov 2016:

From the perspective of a tool developer, where a tool is actively maintained, I wonder if there is a good way to keep the maintenance of the GBIF page to a minimum, so as not to have to remember to keep that up-to-date as well as the tool.

In any case, given the opportunity, there are a number of things to edit with respect to the Calculator.

It is now called just "Georeferencing Calculator".  The URL to get to it is still correct. The Copyright is 2001-2015. The preferred citation is given on the calculator page, and could be one of the things not to have to maintain on the GBIF page, if it is not strictly necessary to be there. Otherwise, it should be as follows:

Wieczorek C, J Wieczorek (2015) Georeferencing Calculator (version 20160929). Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, Berkeley. Available: Accessed [yyyy-mm-dd].

The languages for it are English, Español, Portugués, Français, and Nederlands.

The authors of this version (changed substantially in 2015) are Craig Wieczorek and John Wieczorek, in that order, (as in the citation).

I have attached an up-to-date screen shot for the tool to replace the ancient one that is on there.
