Ever since the first version of Seek was released in March 2018, people have been asking if their observations will contribute to citizen science or be used to improve the computer vision model. Now, they can!
As of today, Seek users can post to iNaturalist. To make this happen, in Seek you can:
- Create an iNaturalist account or log in with an existing iNaturalist account
- Create an account for a child under the age of 13 (with a parent or guardian’s permission)
- Optionally post to iNaturalist at the time of making an observation. This is a simple, one-way method to get it to iNaturalist, with limited functionality.
Observations that have been created from Seek can be found here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?oauth_application_id=333&place_id=any&subview=grid
You will need to update Seek to access this this new functionality.
