Interesting Links to Tools

Shamelessly taken from Eric Maxwell's (@hydrophilus) profile:

Some of Maxwell's favorite iNat queries and tools:

General wiki on using iNat URL tools:
https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/how-to-use-inaturalists-search-urls-wiki-part-1-of-2/63

View your least-observed taxa - This is essentially a tool to show you the rarest taxa that you've observed. It generates a list of your observed taxa sorted by the least number of observations on iNat: https://elias.pschernig.com/wildflower/leastobserved.html?user=christopherrustay&user2=

Unobserved in my state (NM), with open geoprivacy and open taxon geoprivacy, and with position accuracy <50m. This is a great way to find species you haven't seen yet:
