Hi tomasfx04, we have noticed you are having a problem with the mapping co-ordinates so we have some help details for you.
Project Noah is a free to use program being run by volunteers and mapping services are generally very expensive to run so we only use the basic version from Google Cloud services. so we no longer have access to their search services which used to be free, or at least very cheap. The following explains how to use the free service.
All you have to do when you select location is either enter coordinates if you know them, or leave it blank and press enter. With the latter option you will be taken to either your last used location or to Lat 0 Lon 0 on the map and you can then drag and drop the pin in the correct place manually in conjunction with the zoom buttons for greater accuracy.
If you have a camera which has an attached operating location device such as GPS, or are using a mobile device with camera and location services turned on, when you upload the picture it will also read the location data and automatically put the pin in the right place.
If you know your location data you can enter it in the format 0.00 0.00 You must enter at least 2 decimal places even if they are zeroes. Use more for greater accuracy.
Put a - sign in front of the first number if you are south of the equator, and a - in front of the second number if you are west of the Greenwich meridian, so for this spotting the correct co-ordinates are 18.072718 -66.949725
If you use Google Earth to obtain co-ordinates you can go to Tools>Options>3D View tab and in the Show Lat/Lon box select Decimal Degrees, then click Apply followed by OK.
Meadow grasshoper (Pseudochorthippus parallelus) mating pair: Photos1-4. Female: 5th photo. Male: 6th photo. Pseudochorthippus parallelus (formerly Chorthippus parallelus), the meadow grasshopper, is a common species of grasshopper found in non-arid grasslands throughout the well vegetated areas of Europe and some adjoining areas of Asia.
wingspan 3-4" , very actively and nervously moving, sadly coudn't get any other pictures (with open wings) so here a description: brightly orange fading into lightish brown towards edges of wings, a few dots of white or brown here and there. I saw it around 3 in the afternoon
For the developers at New York start-up Networked Organisms, smartphones are the butterfly nets of the 21st Century. Their tool, Project Noah, lets people upload photos of plants and wildlife around them, creating a map of the natural world and contributing to scientific research in the process.
Bespectacled scientists of yore would carry around hefty field guides, made up of hundreds of pages of text and photos. But these days, smartphone owners have a lighter option: an app called Project Noah, which aims to help people identify plants and animals as well as collect data from "citizen scientists" about where certain species are located.
Project Noah enables us to be part of a more focused online community where we can learn more about wildlife around us and contribute to scientific research. It pulls participants into deeper, more meaningful engagement by enabling people to go on “missions” to collectively map changes based on sightings.
A modern invention that may also hold the key to saving species in the future. Project Noah is a global study that encourages nature lovers to document the wildlife they encounter, using a purpose built phone app and web community. In addition to the virtual "collection" of species, Project Noah encourages citizen science by linking up with existing surveys including the International Spider Survey and the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network.
