The Compare tool is a really quick and helpful way to see a ranked list of the most observed species in a family/genus/group that occur near an observation (among other features). It’s particularly helpful to me when reviewing observations I made while traveling to a new area where I’m not at all familiar with the local flora/fauna.
But the Compare tool is only available for observations that have already been uploaded, so to use it I would have to upload the observations, navigate to the observation of interest, and then click the Compare button. I can get the same information other ways, such as searching on the Explore page or heading to a place checklist, but the quick search, already tailored to the observation I’m looking at, is what makes it particularly useful.
Having the Compare tool on the web uploader (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/upload) would be super handy.
Not quite sure where it would go, whether it should be a link or button, or other design/UI considerations.
