How do I add a location to my observation?

Follow

To assist you with indicating the location of your sighting, we have included an Add Location tool on the Add Observation page.

1. Click on Add location to open the map tool:

 

2. You can add a position on the map in a number of ways:

2.1 Using Location Keywords

    • You can enter location keywords in the first field and click on "Find". This will change the map to the relevant position.
    • From here you can refine the positioning by zooming in and placing the geo-marker on the exact spot, should you wish to do so.
    • Enter or edit the location in the Address field. This doesn't change the map, but gives an opportunity to edit the location address that will be displayed on the Observation page.
    • The Latitude and Longitude information will be completed automatically based on the position of the geo-marker.
    • Once you are satisfied with the position, click "OKAY".

 

2.2 Directly place a geo-marker on the map

    • Zoom and drag the map to the lcoation.
    • Click on the map to place the geo-marker in the correct position.
    • The Latitude and Longitude information will be completed automatically based on the position of the geo-marker.
    • Once you are satisfied with the position, click "OKAY".

2.3 Directly enter the Latitude and Longitude

    • If you have the information available, you can directly enter the Latitude and Longitude in the available fields.
    • Always verify that the geo-marker on the map is at the intended position.
    • Once you are satisfied with the position, click "OKAY".

IMPORTANT: If the specimen in your observation is at risk of being poached, for example a rhinoceros, only add the greater region where it was sighted (for example Gauteng), never the precise location.
