Observation Accuracy Experiment


One of iNaturalist's core goals is generating high-quality biodiversity data to advance science and conservation. They are launching some experiments to better understand the accuracy of these data. The results of the first one are explained in this blog post We estimate the accuracy of Research Grade observations to be 95% correct!

Take a look at the results to see how the experiment was undertaken and find out more detail. Keep in mind that these results are drawn from a relatively small sample size, but this is the first quantitative accuracy estimate they've had.
