The name is also misspelled. I’d be OK fixing things, but it would be good to reach out to the creator and ask them if it’s OK (or if they wanted to fix it). It doesn’t look like you can flag places, which is what I would think would be the best route of action. https://www.inaturalist.org/places/deer-lake-park-pa
Looks like the creator was last active about 9 months ago, so probably best to PM them (on the chance that they have messages going to email). But if you don’t hear anything back after a while, I think it’s fair to edit as this is pretty obviously incorrect. It’s also worth noting that it looks like all the observations currently in the place would continue to be in there if edited to be correct, so this wouldn’t exclude any observations if they were using the place for a project or something.
Tangent: Google Maps often has incorrect place boundaries so not necessarily a good source for making places: the county map sounds pretty definitive!
If you don’t hear back, it might just be easier to create a new place with a more accurate boundary. You don’t need “PA” in the place name since the place should have PA as a parent (which the current place does not).
Because of the new restrictions on places, it wasn’t as simple as changing the polygon. I created the KML file on Google My Maps because I could trace the Google boundary, but then iNat didn’t recognize the file. Using the tips here, I downloaded the existing KML file, opened both KML files in TextEdit, and pasted the coordinates (without altitude) from my new KML into the old one. Then it uploaded fine.
Thank you! I didn’t realize part of the new approach to Places was removing the polygon tool, but as the discussion notes…it wasn’t super easy to draw complex places at all (at least last time I used it)
