Is there a way to make obscured the default?
Hannah Lynch
01:07:49
what if you are not sure if it was planted by people or not?
Susan Newman
01:07:55
If the suggestions aren't what you think your plant how do you type in the name? I'm on an Android.

I know we are not traveling now but in the future, if we are out of the area, are our observations auto uploaded to the City Nature Challenge 2020 Washington DC if that is what we joined even though the observation is out of area?
Julia Norton
01:18:02
Are photos of dead animals/insects ok?
Barbara Southworth
01:18:19
is the machine learning continuously ongoing based on incoming identified observations?
Corinne Irwin
01:18:36
Should we be focused on plants/animals that are natural vs. captive/cultivated, or does it not matter?
John Friel
01:19:14
Scats, tracks, nests, spider webs all count.

If I set my location to private, will my observations not be included in City Nature Month 2020 or other place-specific projects?
John Friel
01:21:31
For insects, particularly caterpillars, documenting the host plant will help greatly with getting an identification.

Stella has a question
Kim Young
01:21:47
in general. how does the ID by INaturalist compare to others like PlantNet?
Hannah Lynch

Can you mention a few features that are different on the desktop app?
Sara Holtz
01:24:05
What do you recommend if an observation is not identified by the iNaturalist community, even after several days or weeks? poor photo? iNat community preference for 'not cultivated' organisms, ..?

Hi Linda, Carrie is explaining the iNaturalist app, free on the app store. We just finished a tutorial of the app and now Carrie is giving some backend information. I will send a follow up email with more information and the recording of this call will also be available.
