Notes From Nature Talk


  • reddder by reddder

    For some time now, I have been working w/ the 'mushrooms'. My memory may be slipping, but I thought the project was listed @ 31% completed. The stats now res 4% completed. Not that this will have any effect on my continued efforts, but is there a reason for this change?

    Please see this thread... it appears that "Transcribe Once and Validate" indicated in the thread has been implemented (piloted) which means that we no longer have to transcribe four images per specimen. You should have also seen the number of total transcriptions required fall to a quarter of what it was. A similar change occurred in Herbarium and completion went from 94% to 73% but the transcriptions required went from ~200K to ~50K so it's all good.

    (I'm trying to be more cautious than usual now to prevent errors from slipping through.)
