I would love to have a place where I could upload and gather information about noteworthy records of rare animals, such as vagrants or extinct species. I’m not talking about my own observations, but rather about historical observations published elsewhere, like in newspapers or scientific journals.
Is this something I can do on Inat or would this be frowned upon, as they are not my own sightings?
First, before i could add them to a project, I would need to upload most of these records to Inat in the first place. Since they are not my own sightings, I’d want to create an aggregator account. I’d be careful to upload any copyrighted pictures, but at least I could add correct date, place and a link or citation to the original source.
From what I can find, quite many records are not yet in GBIF, I don’t know most of the other sites named here.
