Description of problem: I am managing a project (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/banana-natural-biodiversity-mapping) dealing with Musa diversity. We are exporting data and pics to an external dedicated site (https://www.crop-diversity.org/mgis/musa-in-situ). Pics are exported only if they bear à CC license. © pictures are not exported. So I regularly check new observations with © pics, contact the owners and ask them if they would be ok or not to modify their license so that we can use their pics in our tool. At the beginning, I was filtering the observations of the project using this URL: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/project/banana-natural-biodiversity-mapping?license=none&projects=8367&view=table. But this is not working anymore, and I can’t find a way to filter the observations this way. All other CC licenses are filterable, but not the © one. Any idea?

Thanks for cleaning my message :wink: !

not sure why the license=none and photo-license=none parameters don’t work any more, but while you’re waiting on the Explore page to be fixed, i think you can still use the licensed=false and photo_licensed=false parameters in the observation search endpoint in the API to find unlicensed observations.

here’s something that might help you to view the response from the API a little more easily:
