I recently came across a project (sort of local to me) that is supposedly for ‘accumulating sightings of all flora and fauna’ in a particular area that includes a national park. The area would be less than 50 km square.
However the project includes observations from all over New South Wales (an area bigger than Texas). And it seems that observations MUST be casual grade, which seems contrary to the project description. I assume it is a ‘collection project’ however I’m newish to Inat, so I don’t know much about projects. I think I made my first contribution to a project about a week ago.
Over 4600 observations are included, I cannot find any that actually fit the project description.
I have left out specifics because i don’t want to embarass the project creator, who I’m sure had good intentions. He/ she joined Mar 2, created the project Mar 3 and has made two observations, added Mar 2. That’s all their activity I think.
I’d like to know what, if anything, users should do if a meaningless and misleading project is encountered? I have no idea how common they might be, but I’m sure there are more.
