Projects are really starting to take off on iSpot with many people using them.
They are very simple to create (Add; give a title and description, (add some pics if you want), add a map filter, add other filters and save).
They collect other users observations from across iSpot to give you your project collection.

Projects are not ideal though. We have requested a proper summary: that is - a species list, a user list and a rate of data accumulation. We hope the iSpot team will be amenable to the idea (as well as being able to download these into a spreadsheet).

At present iSpot does not handle searches for projects well (we have asked for this to be addressed too), and as usual iSpot users have risen to the occasion. If you want to look for a southern African project, then Andrew Massyn has compiled an index just for you. It is here:

Bookmark it now!

To use it, simply activate the on-page find (Ctrl-f) and the find box will open on the top of your screen. Type in your search term and click the arrows to go to the matches. Click on the link and you have your project.

Thanks Andrew.
