Quick Tips for Nature Mappers

Veteran Nature Mappers will notice changes to the data entry platform starting October 14th, 2019. These changes are designed as upgrades to improve user experience by allowing citizen-scientists to submit wildlife observations “offline” on mobile devices. The upgrades also enable users to submit photos with their observations, add specialized projects with custom data fields, and enhance the platform’s overall security. Read the press release. 

To enter your wildlife observations, you’ll need to navigate to naturemapping.jhwildlife.org or use one of the links provided on this website. The links and resource materials on this page will help guide you through the data entry process and provide specific skills needed by Nature Mappers. To officially get started with Nature Mapping, you will need to contact JHWF about attending a training session.
