I have a bazillion or so (rough estimate) of wildlife photos dating back many years. I am trying to add them into iNaturalist, but have hit a bit of a snag in my workflow.
First I sort by date, then location. I then cull out bad or duplicate photos. I then upload them into Flickr albums. I then batch edit the location by placing them on a map. At this point they are ready to import (or are they?)
Most of these photos are not identified yet. I may have done so at some point in the past, but that information is not in any metadata or tag. I was hoping to do this as I import the observation into iNat, but the web site seems to be looking for me to already have the species ID in a tag field.
So this works great for already identified photos, but 95% of mine are not.
I could easily do this using the iOS app, but there is no connection between the app and Flickr. That connection only exists on the web site. And other copies of the photos that might exist, like in iCloud, don’t have any geotag.
So I’m stuck!
So what is the best way to get a large number of Flickr photos (mostly birds) into iNaturalist and get their identifications verified?
