Changed Location

My location keeps changing to district 6 despite it being tagged in a different location. I have manually changed it to the correct location twice and after ~3 hours it changes back. Although my location is obscured, the location is obscuring it to somewhere way further away then the actual location, and the species is not endangered.

Welcome, @chrissy_hansen! Can you please share a link to the observation?

Almost all of my locations for my other observations are reading as being in the same “District 6” as well

@chrissy hansen, It appears that you have opted to have the geoprivacy set at “Obscured”.

I am just confused as why it is obscured to so far away because it is not close to the actual location

the obscuration chooses a random location in a roughly 20km x 20 km square. so it can get pretty far away.
