FLMNH and iDigBio are hosting an iNaturalist half-day workshop Friday, September 26th, in the McGuire Conference Room.
"iNaturalist is an online social network of people sharing biodiversity information to help each other learn about nature. It’s also a crowdsourced species identification system and an organism occurrence recording tool. You can use it to record your own observations, get help with identifications, collaborate with others to collect this kind of information for a common purpose, or access the observational data collected by iNaturalist users."(http://www.inaturalist.org/pages/about)
Come learn about iNaturalist from Ken-ichi Ueda, co-founder and director of the website/application. There will be a short introduction (with refreshments) followed by a chance to get outside and use iNaturalist in “the field”. The workshop will then move back indoors so participants can learn about uploading their field observations and other tasks in iNaturalist.
