Observations are done, now upload and ID-ing

We have 14 days to upload until the 14th of November. Please try have it all done before 8 November. Uploading is half of the work, Identifying follows and must also be done by 14 Novemeber.

When uploading, don’t spend too much time trying to identify your observations. Identify to the level you are most comfortable at. Family or genus level, even unknowns are perfectly fine. The experts will take it further and help your observations reach research grade. Please don’t use a buddy system, we aim for quality data.

Remember to keep checking your observations every couple of days as ID-ers will give you suggestions that you need to react to (or not if you don’t know).

Don't forget to vote for the best observations. To vote, simply click the FAVE button (below the map on any observation or in the identify tool see bottom left panel)

Enjoy this is a very exciting part of the GSB.

ID-ing Overberg observations

For this next step, we need much help from all our expert ID-ers. The Identify tool gives the best experience for ID-ing. (Select identify on the top menu bar on the website)

Important filters to use:

  • Project: Great Southern Bioblitz 2022 Overberg (This will automatically include Theewaterskloof, Swellendam area and Bredasdorp area)
  • Categories: Unknown taxa (see leaf with ?), plants (see leaf) and any other taxa (bird etc.)
  • Quality grade: Casual and Need ID
  • Dates 28 Oct to 31 Oct
    Then update or reset filters

Alternatively, if you rather want to work with links, here goes:

This is that fabulous part of the GSB where experts and observers engage!

Overberg’s final sprint to the finish line

We are heading into the specialist phase in 4th place in southern Africa with 10200 observations : 48% of the Overberg’s observations are at research grade but 5200 observations still need ID’s.

With 4 days until the deadline, the stats for the 3 areas making up the Overberg look as follows:

  • Bredasdorp area: 53% research grade, 2009 observations still need ID’s.
  • Theewaterskloof: 46% research grade, 2353 observations still need ID’s
  • Swellendam area: 39% research grade, 915 observations still need ID’s

We now need our area specialists to help us with the final ID’s:

Can't wait to see you all at the finish line!
