Computer IDs from a continent away

#1

Hi, I’m from the US, and currently in Ladakh, India (studying plants, etc.). Two brand new users are uploading observations, and the ID’s are all from other continents. Most have been US species suggestions, but there was a New Zealand one as well. There are very few observations in Ladakh, which may be part of the computer algorithm problem, but shouldn’t the app default to lizards, for example, rather than suggesting a US lizard? I know that the local lizards are recorded, because I’ve posted a few of them.

Secondarily, I’ve suggested to one new user the app is wrong, but if he doesn’t look at the web interface, I’m not sure he’s really seeing my comments. I want to be encouraging, but with all the wrong app ID’s I’m not sure it is coming across.
