It’s easiest for me to upload observations from my phone, especially since many of the plants and insects that I photograph are done with my phone. Sometimes the location automatically gets sent to iNaturalist, sometimes not (and I’m not sure why). In the cases where it does not I find it extremely difficult to give an accurate location., especially if the location is in a wilderness area. Even when I am very zoomed in to the point where the satellite image has reached it limit of zoom still well known locations (for example Sierra San Pedro de Mártir National Park) have no label on the app’s map.
When I find observations I am usually in a location which doesn’t have cell signal (although my phone GPS should still be working), and uploading the images later from home, trying to scroll around a tiny screen and find the location on the satellite image map is virtually impossible to do accurately. I find it much easier the way the website location map is implemented, where I type in the name of the location.
Also a question, if I have uploaded an image with approximate location, but want to give a more accurate location, is it possible to edit the location from the website? I have tried and couldn’t find a way to do it.
