I might be wrong, but on the taxa page map view, I believe the filter means either show verifiable observations (if enabled) or show no observations (if disabled), I don’t think you can choose on that map view to see both verifiable and non verifiable records.
Talking with Ken-ichi, checking the verifiable box should append “verifiable=true” to the map request, and un-checking it should remove that, thus showing all observations. I’ll file an issue so it can be looked into some more.
I’m unclear why you would have that 1 option on the map to be forced to always be visible, that way it means unlike all the other criteria on the map - checklists, GBIF records etc there is no way to turn it off.
Would a better choice not be to change the behaviour of the Observations without Media toggle to be any non verifiable observation for whatever reason, and then maintain the consistency of behaviour of being able to remove that category from visibility for all layers on the map ?
Well, we should make sure “mapped wrong” observations still don’t show up. Wrong date, etc are fine. It would be neat to be able to specifically toggle just the observations that need ID too! But I realize not everyone wants 100 map layers the way I do
Have just noticed from another topic in the forums about this, that there is a “captive=all” that can be tacked on to the url to bring up the map pins for the cultivated observations. It is far from obvious that this needs to be done.
A couple days ago I went for a trip out to the arboretum to scout for a location to take a group of school children to learn about odonata, and while there I wanted to make more observations of the cultivated plants, so I chose an area of the arboretum that didn’t have any pins. When there, I was surprised to see it was an area I had already been through, so for me it was not even obvious that they were being excluded on the map, let alone how to show them.
Will this be addressed with the new explore page functionality?
