Progressing through the iMatch timeline on my images, the next one to be dealt with is a nice landscape shot at Thornton Reservoir, images get their Location metadata, R6 already has this Location (I use the Garmin track information instead for my images bacause it precisely records the spot I took the shot) but I'll add an Event to my 2012 Survey just as a reminder even though it was too early in the year and late in the day for there to be any species I would wish to record.
Next Location is a serious one, I've lots of images of various species, records from previous visits, field notes and specimens. So Burgh-next-Aylsham details get bunged onto my images and and an Event is created in R6. This one starts a serious bit of recording, images back-checked against specimens (if any), notes and previous records together with careful examination of images to determine if they can be identified from what was snapped. An R6 Sample is set up, Taxon occurences added (including the recording of my unique image identifier in the Specimen tab as a "Photograph" and any specimen identifiers I have too - why "Specimen"? - shouldn't this be "Material" or "Evidence"? - which makes more linguistic sense).
Identifications are also added to iMatch's Category system (an hierarchical tree you can set up to your own interests, in my case Diptera taxonomy right down to species names).
I'll not get them all done today, I've pictures of molluscs, coleoptera and lepidoptera in this batch so they'll have to wait but at least the Diptera and Odonata are all done and dusted in R6 and maybe a few images flagged up for posting onto iSpot at some point, and if anyone wants full details of such a record, it's all there in the picture's metadata now.
