Project Scope Update

At present this project is set up to only include the observations uploaded by the project members, provided they are residing in South Australia (or ex-resident). This means the observations included in the project represent approximately 55% (~34,000) of all observations recorded in South Australia. The remaining 45% (~28,000) are either observations from local residents who are not project members, or from visitors to SA.

I am planning to alter this so that ALL observations from SA are included. The project focus will remain the same, with a membership of only those residing in South Australia with knowledge of local places and species. The effects of this change will be:

The observations and species totals on the project page will change to the SA totals, and the ‘stats’ tab will reflect this.
The project “Users” list will change from individual members names to “any”.
The “Most Observations”, “Most Species” and “Most Observed Species” leader boards will include all observers who uploaded any observations in SA, even if they are not project members. (For example, this will put the “questagame’ account on the leader boards as it currently has the 3rd highest number of observations in the state).

Please let me know in the comments section if you prefer the current format or have any concerns with the change. I think including all observations for the state will better show the effect of all our contributions.

iNaturalist Projects List for South Australia

UPDATE: Project list current as of 7/01/2020

iNaturalist allows for the creation of three project types: Umbrella Projects, Collection Projects and Traditional Projects.

Currently the Project Search page lists a few Featured, Recently Active and Recently Created projects, but doesn't provide additional search features, such as searching for projects by region, taxa or users. This means it can be difficult to find projects that may be of interest.

Here, I have attempted to collate all the iNat projects that relate specifically to South Australia. They have been organised by project type and further by taxa or location. I've also attempted to group projects with similar themes. I have excluded from this list only those projects that relate to events that have since past, i.e. Bioblitz projects.

Please let me know if there are any projects I've missed. I'll update this list as more projects are created.

Project Type: Umbrella Projects
Umbrella Projects are used to compare statistics across two or more Collection or Traditional Projects, allowing visual comparisons of data among projects under the umbrella, including project leaderboards and links to each Collection or Traditional Project.
All the projects linked to the Umbrella Projects are listed individually below, with the exception of the Collection Projects in "Protected Parks of South Australia"  and "City of Onkaparinga NATUREhoodz", as this would make the list below unwieldy. Click through to these Umbrella Projects to see the linked Collections Projects.
