How to surface interesting observations

it’s not perfect, but it’s supposed to help point out when there’s an observation that has been recently identified as something that hasn’t been seen before (in the area), or at least hasn’t been seen in a while.

for example, the circled record below is the latest species-level observation that fits this criteria in my area. there are strong signs it’s probably an inaccurate ID because when i look at the “ID via comp vision” column, i can see that the ID was CV-assisted, and i can also see in the next column that the ID was done by the observer:

then if i go to the observation and look at the map for nearby observations, i see that there aren’t any unless i travel more than 500 miles in any direction:
