Thanks for responding.
I’m learning more about the problem. When I export the data for the whole project (a traditional project that I am the curator of, which is tied to a certain region), I do get the records that have “obscured” in the geoprivacy fields. This is the query:
Query quality_grade=any &identifications=any &projects=metchosin-biodiversity &d2=2018-01-01 &taxon_geoprivacy=any
When I insert into the query string a place within the region (a park that has been defined by a polygon and registered as an iNat place)
Query quality_grade=any &identifications=any &place_id=163527 &projects=metchosin-biodiversity &d2=2018-01-01 &taxon_geoprivacy=any
The data that is returned is, as expected, the subset of the project data that has a GPS location inside of the place’s polygon. However, the subset no longer includes the records with “obscured” in the geoprivacy fields.
My guess would be that adding the place to the query means that iNat is searching to find data with GPS coordinates inside the polygon and that it is using the “fuzzed” GPS coordinates, which have been moved outside of the polygon.
Any help you can give which would allow me to extract all of the project records that are within certain places would be appreciated.
