Heatmaps of our observations and identifications on user profiles

Nice lil maps to include on user profiles would be heatmaps of our observations and identifications:


These are mine. Sorry for cropping out most of the world.
A dark map base might be better.

My observations: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/map?user_id=bouteloua
My identifications: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/map?ident_user_id=bouteloua
Everyone’s observations: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/map

Some of the zoom levels render the heatmap strangely but others look nice.

I often look at profile and then users observations just to see where their usual haunts are, and this on the profile would be a neat way to see it!

This is a great idea but likely wouldn’t be implemented until we re-design the profile page. Will add it to ideas for that redesign, and am closing this topic.
