What is wanted?

Is iSpot looking for pictures of things that require identification or pictures of things that have been definitively identified?

what's wanted


iSpot is intended to help people learn about wildlife and how to identify it. Observations (with pictures and/or descriptions) from people seeking help with identification form the bulk of the activity on iSpot, but alongside that it is useful to have images that show identified species, to act as a reference or comparison. So if you're willing to upload some of your identified photos that would be most welcome.

Over time we hope to develop further features on iSpot to make greater use of the images available, such as allowing people to display a gallery of their own images, or to search more easily for images of the same or related species.
