The groups of individuals who geocache may not overlap the groups of individuals whom are naturalists. The groups of individuals who create greenspace trails may not overlap naturalists either.
I just tried looking at the greenspace in my area for the location of plant species at risk on the map. They are not public because they are species at risk but they are my observations - so at this time I can only see them there.
ARRRGGGHHH! They don’t show up even on a map made of “my observations”. Therefore, even though the trail makers have a map of proposed trails there cannot be a quick overlay of maps saying whooooppps!!! that is not a good place for a trail. Of for the geocachers who have maps online of the geocache locations, there is not a way to overlay a map of endangered species and reach out to the geocacher community and inform them of the species at risk and wonder if the geocache site could possibly be relocated.
So, in my signed in profile I can see the locations where i observed the species at risk, but not on the map. The plants are only easy to see in June for locations. So, sigh there is no way to easily alert the other groups of overlap unless I methodically open up each and every one of the observations, and somehow placing them into a different online GPS map one by one to see if any overlap the geocaching or trail proposals.
Am I missing something? It would be so so nice if I could privately open up all my endangered flowers on a GPS map for such comparisons to afford them protections from the geocaching or the trail footprint increase of users.
