Batch Edit for Land Trust Location?

I have an iPod that only records locations when it detects a WIFI signal. Consequently, many of my observations have locations listed as outside the land trust boundary that I am trying to inventory. Is there a way to batch edit these to put them inside the bounds of land trust? Locations don’t need to be exact. I have probably 300 entries so doing them individually is a pain. Being able to highlight observations from a map view would be ideal.

Thanks for any help you can offer !

Batch editing is available at You can use the search function to narrow down your observations, then click “Batch edit” and select the observations you want to edit. Then click “Edit selected”.

I must be doing something wrong. Even when I search with the place noted as North America, no records are returned.

I am looking for observations within Cape Elizabeth, ME

Thanks for your help.

Can you share a link to your search for North American observations that didn’t return any records?

Here is one for Cumberland County with quite a few results. Note that you can zoom in on the map and redo your search area to refine it.✓&q=&search_on=&quality_grade=any&reviewed=&identifications=any&captive=&place_id=2004&swlat=&swlng=&nelat=&nelng=&taxon_name=&taxon_id=&day=&month=&year=&[]=&d1=&d2=&created_on=&site=&tdate=&list_id=&filters_open=true&view=map

I believe this is what you are asking.✓&q=&search_on=&quality_grade=any&reviewed=&geoprivacy=&identifications=any&captive=&iconic_taxa[]=Insecta&iconic_taxa[]=Plantae&iconic_taxa[]=Arachnida&iconic_taxa[]=Amphibia&iconic_taxa[]=Fungi&iconic_taxa[]=Mammalia&iconic_taxa[]=Aves&iconic_taxa[]=Protozoa&iconic_taxa[]=Animalia&iconic_taxa[]=Mollusca&iconic_taxa[]=Reptilia&iconic_taxa[]=Actinopterygii&iconic_taxa[]=Chromista&iconic_taxa[]=unknown&place_id=113711&swlat=&swlng=&nelat=&nelng=&taxon_name=&taxon_id=&day=&month=&year=&[]=&d1=&d2=&created_on=&site=&tdate=&list_id=&filters_open=true&view=map

If I search here, I get over 500 observations but I cannot batch edit from here, can I?

OK, not sure what I did differently, but now it’s working. Thanks for the tip about using the map to guide searches - that’s very helpful.
