I’m going to be running iNaturalist workshops at schools this spring, and want to create a project for all of the students’ observations. I know you can create non-contiguous geographical boundaries for projects, so in my case each separate school can have its own polygon on the map that are all within the umbrella project.
Is there a way to filter for observations within a specific geographical area inside a project? I’d like to be able to keep all of the schools together in one project, as it is being funded by a grant and it would be good have them all grouped together for reporting. But it would also be useful to be able to search each school separately, so when I go back to the schools I can easily present them with the data that just their school collected.
I’ve noticed that in this project, which seems to encompass the whole globe, under the observations there’s a link that says “More Observations,” and that takes you to a map that you can draw rectangles or circles on to search within those bounds.
But in this project, there’s no “More Observations” button that I can see, and I can’t figure out a way to search a smaller area. Granted, this project covers a small area already, but the upcoming project with schools will be a bunch of sites spread throughout my regional district.
