Why must I manually enter the location?

Switch language: Nederlands

By request of several researchers the observer is asked to enter the exact location of the observed bird. In certain situations it is very important to know whether the bird has been seen on one side of a road or the other.

When you observe more than one ringed birds in a group, you can choose the “previous” button on the location screen. This will give the new observation the exact same coordinates as the previous one.

There is an option (in settings, see three dots on the main screen) to disable the location screen completely, to make it possible for you to enter observations even faster and easier. The observation will get the coordinates of your own position. Usually not precise enough, but in some circumstances you may prefer faster input above more precision.
