I am in the process of putting together a series of lessons on using iNaturalist data for middle/high school geography educators. An objective of one of the lessons is what might be the geo-political context of making observations? Population density, development, access to internet, are all factors.
One of the questions I have is about what non English language users see when the app is used, particularly outside North America/UK. How much does language figure into observation density in other countries?
For example, do Chinese iNaturalists see the app interface in Chinese? It looks to me as if the IDs are in English but maybe not? That would make a working knowledge of English one of the factors.
One of the most interesting examples of observation density is South and North Korea. I think world geography teachers would be really interested in the factors that played out there. What are your thoughts?
