9,000 and rising ...

Martin Harvey's picture

This week we had our 9,000th registered user join iSpot! With more joining every day the 10,000 mark is fast approaching.

Latest figures also show:

  • over 37,000 observations added
  • over 45,000 identifications have been made, working out at an average of 1.2 suggested identifications per observation (in other words most observations have a single identification, with no dispute over its correctness)
  • just under 133,000 identification agreements, at an average of 3.6 agreements per observation

Many thanks to all iSpot participants, whether you provide identification puzzles or answers! It's particularly pleasing to see the high number of agreements, which not only help to confirm the identifications but also allow people to make progress with learning how to recognise species for themselves.
