I just came across this observation https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/42236744 that’s geolocated to Gamboa, Panama but displays a location in Colombia (Cumaribo, Vichada).
not a bug. work it out with the observer. the place description is just a text field that can be set to anything, regardless of what the coordinates are.
oh wow, I had no idea, I thought place names could only be generated automatically during the upload process.
