Dividing observations into two locations

Is it possible to divide observations collected within a project into two distinct areas. We are trying to compare biodiversity of two areas as a class project. Currently all our observations are grouped together in stats. We would like to be able to see the observations separately in stats. Is there a way to do this?

sounds like you need to start with two distinct places. from there, i think you can either do 1 project per place and then wrap both projects into an umbrella project, or you can put both places into a single project and then just do your own ad hoc analysis at a place level.

What @pisum said. Also you should be able to edit the current place area, and replace and rename it with one of your desired subdivisions. Then you would only need to upload one new place, for the other subdivision.
