Workshop: Introduction to iNaturalist (Autumn 2018)

  1. Introduce the philosophy of the site. How it is designed and works. This centres around:
    The layout:
    • Observations
    • Species
    • Places
    • Projects
    • Guides
    • People

How it works: • What makes an observation. • Species and the dictionary and links • Extracting and showcasing your data The differences between iSpot and iNature and how to think iNature.
  1. How to use iNature:
Practical coursework: • How to upload an observation • How to edit observations, including bulk edits • How to custom access data and updates, and use your dashboard • How to manage your account • How to add CREW data
  1. Have some more fun (time permitting):

• Creating Places and species lists
• Creating Projects and managing data
• Creating Guides
• Reviewing IDs and contributing identifications
• Anything you find interesting and would like to explore in more detail.

Please bring to the course!

o Your computer (laptop, palmtop, ipad, cellphone, smartphone or equivalent, with Wifi or Bluetooth capabilities), and powercord.
o Between 10 and 20 pictures suitable for uploading to iNaturalist: of 5 to 15 different organisms. Plants, animals or fungi – not people, pets or places.
o If you are into checklists and guides, please bring along a checklist to your nature reserve, farm, garden or whatever. Just a list of species names without authors.
o Please sign up before you come to the course: www.inaturalist.org - make sure that you are properly registered. Bring along your user-name and your password – and preferably an email address that you can access at SANBI (not one tied to your home line).
o Yourself, with lots of questions.

Amalgamated

I have amalgamated :

"Autumn First"
For the first sightings in Autumn for your area - any plant (seedling, growth, flower, fruit), bird (seen, calling, mating, nesting, young, flocking), animal or fungus (fruiting or growing).

&

"Spring First"
For the first sightings in Spring for your area - any plant (seedling, growth, flower, fruit), bird (seen, calling, mating, nesting, young, flocking), animal or fungus (fruiting or growing).

This project allows both these firsts, and also the "lasts" of the seasons.
The different options are now recorded in a field.

Time to IdentificationAs the stats do not include IDs without ID, this statistic is currently meaningless. Hopefully we can fix this and provide this stats soon.

Riana Bate asks (email: Fri 2015/05/29 17:42):
Basically because you asked, the one thing we would like to see in the stats is: a list of new sp, genera, etc. identified. i.e the growth of Ispot as an identification tool.
Here:
(Sorry iSpot does not have a nice table formatting method):

  • There are more vars and forms in the dictionary, but access to the literature to ID these is highly problematic. These figures are from the s Afr checklist (Strelitzia 14).

Thanks to Riaan for finding these on the Dark Side.
