Hello and thanks in advance your time and expertise!
I am working on a project for my county and county library system. My role in the project is that of a library trustee, and project coordinator. In a nutshell, we are exploring the idea of a creating a digital natural history museum thru the library system. The goals of the project are best summarized as 3 fold-
- engage students and citizen scientist
- exhibit our extraordinary local natural history
- archive available natural history data (at least the low hanging fruit)
In order to avoid re-inventing a complex data portal system we are considering using I-Naturalist as a portal to interact with with contributors or researchers. From what I have gathered the INaturalist “Project” feature will meet the needs of reporting and retrieving information within the county. This is great and will be a giant leap forward our local project.
My 1st question is this- is is possible to embed an INaturalist Project into a website, or is it required that the user leave our library’s URL to engage a Project?
