Those who are familiar with GBIF could check an experimental feature which highlights possible duplicate and/or related occurrences.
At the moment, 174,688 iNat observations are clustered with other GBIF-mediated records. That’s really awesome to see herbarium vouchers for the iNat records automatically and unmistakenly selected by GBIF.
A link to clustered data: https://www.gbif.org/occurrence/gallery?dataset_key=50c9509d-22c7-4a22-a47d-8c48425ef4a7&advanced=1&is_in_cluster=true

Wow! That’s really amazing!
Just for interest I checked one of my several thousand records that occur in both iNat and a national fungarium collection data-set, and they don’t get linked. In fact I can’t find any that are linked.
e.g. this …
Occurrence 2802601372 (gbif.org)
and this …
Occurrence 1944425399 (gbif.org)
So what is it that stops those being flagged as likely the same?
ok - got it - I wasn’t clicking on the cluster tab.
