Important settings of the ornitho app NaturaList

The mobile input of observations directly from the field is increasing more and more. In the meantime, about half of the data is received via the ornitho app NaturaList. But there are a few things to keep in mind and it is important that the app is set up correctly. You can access the "Preferred settings" via the "Hamburger menu icon" and configure the app there. We would like to list some particularly important notes and settings below:

1. Report the position of the bird, not your own location!
When entering data, it is important to move the map so that the red pointer marks the location of the bird. Your own location (smiley) is irrelevant and only serves to facilitate orientation in the field within the app.

2. Select the correct species list!
The species list is a central element of the app, through which important options are controlled (e.g. map bases, projects, bird monitoring, additional information). It is therefore of great importance that the list from ornitho.ch is selected for bird observations in Switzerland. Please check in the settings of the app under "Species list" that the list of the internet portal ornitho.ch is selected.

3. Correct list of atlas codes!
Particularly important information can be obtained by assigning atlas codes. Even though the codes are internationally agreed, there are slight differences from country to country. To ensure that your observations can be correctly classified, it is important to select the 19-digit list in the app settings under "Choice of atlas codes". Basic information on assigning atlas codes can also be found here: Which sightings to record?

4. Use map bases optimally!
We recommend using the map “Swisstopo Map Live” as default. The default can be set in the app settings under "Map". Should it ever be necessary to use an aerial photograph for a particularly precise location, the map layers can be easily changed during data entry via the "layers" symbol at the top left of the map (e.g. " Swisstopo SWISSIMAGE Live"). Please do not choose any of the Google map layers, for two reasons: 1.) These cause costs for us, all others are free of charge (and often better)! This money can be put to much better use. 2.) There are plans to remove most of these from NaturaList soon.

Please take the time to check the above settings once and correct them if necessary. This will make the app easier to use, improve the quality of your data and help us to save costs. You can find many more tips on how to use NaturaList in our user guide "Reporting bird observations" (available in German, French or Italian).

Thank you very much!
