Accuracy circle outside Place area, observation still in Project

I’ve created this place ( for a personal project. This observation’s accuracy circle ( is partially outside of the place area, but it’s still in my collection project. Not complaining as I want it in the project, but does this mean there’s actually a small margin of tolerance for inclusion in an area?

I may be totally mis-remembering, but I think the accuracy circle has to fall outside the bounding box (rectangular extent) of the place, not just the place boundary itself. This being a somewhat diagonal place, I can see where the 61 meter accuracy circle of this observation might still fit within the bounding box of the place.


Cheers Jim, that makes sense.
