If you're looking for an alternative to , no need to ask @switchingsocial@mastodon.at - I have the perfect tip for you.

It is harder, more complex, more fun, doesn't track you and you can play it on any device that has a camera: It's called .

Or if you don't have any such device try WildLifeDrawing instead, which the former is a fork of.

I'm already a Lv 2 catcher. Check out my collection @paulakreuzer

Gotta document them all!

@paulakreuzer @switchingsocial@mastodon.at This is quite a coherent proposal! 's concept in fact originated from a hobby Satoshi Tajiri had —insect collecting— when the original Gameboy's portability opened the possibility of transfering them between players.

adapts the concept with the new reality: mobile internet. But there's no need for that! We now have cameras on our pockets, to catch species —in a photo— out there… and then "transfer" them in the 🌐

@paulakreuzer @switchingsocial @paulakreuzer and the next step is to upload them to WikimediaCommons (#wikipedia). And properly fill the description and categories, so they can be found later.

@paulakreuzer @switchingsocial @paulakreuzer Another recommendation: Street Complete. It lets you contribute data to open street map by walking around the city and noting down the type of roads, speed limits, accessibility features in restaurants/shops, names of streets and lots of other stuff

@BadAtNames
It would be amazing if we could add similar functionality into . I'd like to use my offline maps while comtributing.

@timokoesters doesn't OSMAnd have a OSM editor plugin? I'm pretty sure I remember using it while offline

@BadAtNames
Only for simple data like POIs, their tags and OSM notes. You can't edit roads at all.

@paulakreuzer #iNaturalist is also pretty good in this regard, letting your photographic findings contribute to open data on wildlife sightings 🍃

@paulakreuzer Love it, I also tried the application, it's amazing. What do you think about the individuums I documented?

And did you check out the expansion pack which recently launched called #Plants? I already got a precious one!

@paulakreuzer @switchingsocial @paulakreuzer I believe there are actually apps where you can register your sightings to improve population statistics?
