Hi Jessica48! We're glad you've joined us! I have relocated your spotting to the right location using Edit this spotting and then dragging the pin on the map. You can do the same again to fine-tune the location if you wish. The following explains how to use the mapping system on the Project Noah. We hope it'll help; if not please contact us on

Project Noah is a free to use program currently run by a very small team of volunteers with no source of funding. At the moment we only have access to the basics tools offered Google Cloud services. Here's how to use their free mapping 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 example 40.00 -90.00 will put you somewhere near Chicago in USA.
