Thanks for the replies.
I really enjoy watching the iNat web page come up with suggestions for what photos I upload. It is amazing technology.
After a little bit of searching I found a web page by iNaturalist explaining more about Seek that they developed. Apparently it was made for children and families. That’s a good idea to not share the findings so they can feel safe. Here is a quote from that web page:
“Seek also uses data submitted to iNaturalist to show suggestions for “species nearby,” but unlike iNaturalist, findings made with Seek will not be shared publicly, making it safe for children to use.”
I really don’t care about making an identification in the field. I was just interested in learning more about that app. I am more interested in taking sharp, clear photos with my camera (not my phone) so that I can upload them later to iNaturalist. I originally got involved with iNat for a state dragonfly survey here in Ohio. There are plenty of actual people who can help me with an identification. But, that technology is really cool.
Here is the link to that web page. It does explain some of the development process.
