Phylogenetic Projects for 'unknown' observations

Updated on 15 Jan 2023.

Continuing from this post:

To date, I grabbed more than 500000 observations without identification. For each observation, I analyzed the 10 identification suggestions proposed by the computer vision and generated a "best ID". Then, I made an analysis of the distribution of all these "best IDs". Then, I designed and run an algorithm for choosing 1000 taxa so that all the "best IDs" could be spread over these 1000 taxa, with the intention to create 1000 projects for grouping all the observations, the ones already grabbed and all others to be grabbed later.

The aim is to help a person identifying "unknown" observations to quickly access the observations matching their preferred taxon or taxa.

Note that it would be possible to access the contents of several projects using a single URL combining the IDs of the projects matching the taxa of interest. This is why I plan to create many projects, instead of only a few ones. Of course, every "unknown" observation would be put in only one such project.

Each project description provides links for identifying observations in the project only, in the project and its subprojects, and (except for the highest ranks) in the projects and all its subprojects recursively. Each project description provides links to all parents projects and link to subprojects (projects can be browsed like a tree).

Direct links to all these projects for observations without id.:

Amazing 😍

Publicado por belsun hace más de 1 año

It's a pretty ingenious idea. I will be watching curiously.

Publicado por arboretum_amy hace más de 1 año

That is a great approach, and I expect this to become especially helpful after larger bioblitz events, such as the City Nature Challenge.
Are you planning to provide a regular updated overview for those taxa already covered in a project?

Would it be reasonable to create umbrella projects for larger taxa such as 'plants', including all sub-projects? So that botanists could use that umbrella project to search for all possible unkown plants in a specific location (e.g. a CNC area)

Publicado por carnifex hace más de 1 año

Are you planning to provide a regular updated overview for those taxa already covered in a project?

Technically, the most efficient would be to create all remaining projects (300, or 400) approximately at the same time (a long week-end, maybe!), so that every observation (already in cache or just downloaded) can be treated once and definitively, by putting it in one project, then forgetting about it (besides identifying it).

This means that my software would not need anymore to manage a local cache at all! (Provided I renounce to identify observations using it). Simplifying the software could also help to distribute it. If this initiative goes its way, I imagine that my iNat account will not suffice to populate the projects. (It takes already too much time).

Meanwhile, of course, if you wish something in particular, just tell me and I do it with pleasure, as I have just done for spiders:

Don't be surprised if I create 3 or 10 projects when you ask only for 1. Observations pushed to 1 project will not be moved later to 10 different projects, so better to put them in 10 projects from the beginning. (Just in case a person, later, gets interested in only 1 of these 10 [sub-]projects).

Would it be reasonable to create umbrella projects for larger taxa such as 'plants', including all sub-projects?
Technically, it is useless, provided that enough projects are planned in advance.

If you wish to review all Araneae, no need of an umbrella project, just combine the IDs of the 3 projects containing Araneae observations in a single search URL.
Use this link (every project will have such links to help you):

Identify observations without id.:
‑ in project,
‑ in project and all sub-projects.
       <-- This link is an "umbrella" for 3 projects.

Whatever you would like to do with these 3 projects together, append this to the URL of your page of interest (explore page, identify page, ...) :

Sample of a project description generated by software:

Family Fabaceae observations without id. (or high rank id.).

Identify observations without id.:
‑ in project,
‑ in project and sub-projects,
‑ in project and all sub-projects recursively.

Identify observations with high rank id.:
‑ in project,
‑ in project and sub-projects,
‑ in project and all sub-projects recursively.

Parent projects: Fabales, Magnoliopsida, Tracheophyta, Plantae, Life.

Sub-projects: Caesalpinioideae, Cercidoideae, Detarioideae, Faboideae, Mimosoideae.

Then, getting down to the subproject for Faboideae:

Subfamily Faboideae observations without id. (or high rank id.).

Identify observations without id.:
‑ in project,
‑ in project and all sub-projects.

Identify observations with high rank id.:
‑ in project,

Parent projects: Fabaceae, Fabales, Magnoliopsida, Tracheophyta, Plantae, Life.

Sub-projects: Fabeae, Phaseoleae, Trifolieae.

After a bioblitz of observations, we would need a push-to-projects-blitz either.
This also requires that I distribute a software as simple as possible, to people agreeing to share the effort.

Not exactly volunteer computing, but volunteer iNat API access sharing.

@arboretum_amy @belsun @carnifex @dallon @deboas @dianastuder @egordon88 @jf920 @marina_gorbunova @wthompson23

I ended up creating 1000 projects (see above), covering the whole taxonomy. This means that every observation without identification (in particular those with the quality grade "Needs ID") is able to be pushed to one of these phylogenetic projects.

Publicado por jeanphilippeb hace más de 1 año

The more projects there is, the easiest to manage it will be in the future. Adding more projects later would be more work and risk of inconsistency than creating many from the start. (Note that the initial cost for populating the projects is exactly the same: 1 API request for pushing 1 observation to 1 project. This cost is completely independant from the number of projects available).

Reasons for avoiding to add new subprojects in the future:
• Projects and subprojects are linked. Each project has an "umbrella link" for identifying all observations in the project and its subprojects. This consistency must be maintained and adding one subproject requires to update all its parent projects.
• To keep things clean, an observation is pushed to only one project. I don't want people complaining about adding their observations to several phylogenetic projects at the same time. Idem for people using these projects for identifying.
• When adding a new subproject, some observations are not just pushed to the new subproject, they have to be moved, as a consequence of the previous point.
• Moving observations from a project to a new subproject requires ressources.
• Enabling moving observations from a project to another one potentially makes the whole system more sensitive to transient computer vision bugs (see this bug).

That is awesome! Excited to take a deep dive.
Is the overview list of all covered taxa only to be found in this journal post?
Might be helpful to get a link from each project and sub-project back to this post here, if that would be possible

Publicado por carnifex hace más de 1 año

I added a link to this post in the description of some of the highest rank projects.

Each project has links to all its parents and some of the parents now have a link to this post. It would be too much work to edit again all projects to add the link in all of them.

Publicado por jeanphilippeb hace más de 1 año

Great, thanks! Wasn't sure if this could be automated somehow - but if going back to higher ranks will eventually lead to the link, that's already a fine improvement

Big + idea but
Dear Jean-Philippe, some time ago i had a lot observatiohs of Moths in Bulgaria.But now we created several different projects for Bulgaria Lepidoptera:
The Butterflies of BULGARIA RG
Lepidoptera of BULGARIA (NEEDS ID)
Moths of BULGARIA 1 Noctuoidea RG
Moths of BULGARIA 2 "Geometroidea" RG
Moths of BULGARIA 3 "Drepanoidea, Lasiocampoidea and Bombycoidea" RG
Moths of BULGARIA 4 (Crambidae, Pyralidae, Cossidae, Tortricidae and others)
Moths of BULGARIA 5 Burnet's, Clearwings, Plumes and others
Lepidoptera of BULGARIA (LARVA)

and experts are hardly working to ID.
But in you UNKNOWN project my ID-ed observations
are still included in the project as UNKNOWN, I checked and see that those observations already ID-ed and many of them even have RG level.
Can you periodically automatically check the status of observations contained in your project and remove from it those observations that no longer require identification?
Thus, your project will not overflow too.
Thank you.
P.S. At the same time, I find the idea of such a project extremely useful.

Publicado por katya hace más de 1 año

Thank you for your feedback!

By now, I don't plan to remove observations from the "phylogenetic projects":

Anyway, identified observations can be filtered out, as one wishes.
Some people have confirmed they prefer to let observations in the projects for using the projects statistics.
Not removing them spares server ressources.

Removing an observation from a project, has a cost, as it also requires an API request.

I don't say we will never do it, but without other persons running (collaboratively) the same software on a regular basis (~everyday), I won't do it.

This is about projects for sorting the "unknown" observations based on the computer vision suggestions. With these projects, you can directly focus on your preferred taxa, instead of browsing all the "unknown" observations in search for what you can identify.

3 umbrella projects for grouping all phylogenetic projects:

I had to do this for filtering out observations already in a phylogenetic project.

Publicado por jeanphilippeb hace más de 1 año

Summary posted here in the forum:

All my projects are biased with regard to places, because I started downloading observations 2 years ago, country by country and state by state, and recently I added all observations I add in cache into projects. Moreover, I have focused recently on Southern Africa.

There is no bias only with observations that have no identifications and that "needs ID":
All these observations, older than 1 month, have been checked and have been pushed to one of the yellow or blue projects.

The yellow projects are phylogenetic projects (about 1,000 projects) and a few non-phylogenetic projects (Trees of Southern Africa 1 and 2, Pre-Maverick).
This journal post provides the list of all phylogenetic projects.

And there are 3 umbrella projects for grouping all phylogenetic projects (for filtering, or statistics):

The blue projects contain observations that cannot be added to traditional projects or that I decided to exclude from the yellow projects (editorial choice):

And there is this umbrella blue project:

Publicado por jeanphilippeb hace más de 1 año

Consider also checking observation in the Pre-Maverick project, based on a concept from @dianastuder . It is generally easy to make the identification of these observations progress, either by a direct identification that will move the Community Taxon to a lower rank, or by asking for help.

Pre-Maverick observations are observations that can become Maverick with one more identification. They usually have a 1st identification and a 2nd and 3rd ones that disagree with the 1st one. If the resulting Community Taxon is a high rank taxon, they go to the limbo where experts will never find them.

Thanks a lot for the feedback! It helps figuring out if there are used.

Publicado por jeanphilippeb hace más de 1 año

The iNaturalist Staff asked me to delete the "User has opted-out of Community Taxon (Collection)" project. For simplicity, I did it without discussion. This is motivated by a few complaints about this project from people it lists who feel targeted.

As a technical consequence, I suspend my activity for populating the "Unknown / ..." projects (see: ). I chose not to add "opted-out" observations to these projects and it can't be done efficiently without the "opted-out" project. Until a new feature is available for filtering "opted-out" observations. (A technical review of this feature is on-going).

Publicado por jeanphilippeb hace alrededor de 1 año

Do you feel that strongly regarding opted out observations being in the projects? Personally I feel it's better to have opted-out observations in the projects than to cease populating the projects.

Publicado por arboretum_amy hace alrededor de 1 año

I am not sure about this choice (it is for the people using these projects, not for me) (I use only one of these projects). Anyway, there are already many observations in these projects. We will see if/when the new feature comes.

Publicado por jeanphilippeb hace alrededor de 1 año

I have found your yellow label projects a useful suggestion for - may be in this taxon. Especially when it supports my own - I think it is ...
We have 400 new plants in the latest CV update - in part I am sure, from your various projects.

I wonder why iNat chooses to defend the Opted Outs against identifiers? It is those who choose opted out for all their obs that make life more difficult for everyone else. On an obs by obs basis it can make sense, if the observer keeps up with relevant notifications.

Opted Outs get to waste identifier's time and effort. While identifiers learn to check first, opted out? Mark as Reviewed and Next!

@dianastuder Have you brought this up in the forum?

Came here from jp's comment on the 'opted outs' forum post.

We need better support for identifiers from iNat.
Without active and competent identifiers, iNat will be for pretty pictures like Instagram.

They'd be a great help for cleaning up after the City Nature Challenges. They make it easier to get large numbers of observations to genus level (or better) quite quickly.

Projects have not been updated for 8 months, for the reason mentioned above.
See staff response to the feature request Implement a new filter for observations that opt out of community ID.

I'm starting to populate the projects again.
From now on "opted-out" observations will be added to these projects.

Current number of observations in these projects:
A...I: 330,681 observations.
J...S: 536,153 observations.
T...Z: 94,911 observations.
Total: 961,745 observations.

I got several of my observations, the ones I just added out of curiosity with no hope of identifying them myself, added to these projects. It was a really wonderful feeling to get a notification about them, I was not sure if they're useless or "junk" observations altogether, and suddenly they're "followed up on" in this way. Thank you so much!

For example drives me insane (not acutely or continuously, but I really have no idea) because I wonder if someone could just be splashing grey paint into a tree (and why on earth would they), but having you tag it as a potential Ascomycota gives me a lead and something to read up on, and most notably a feeling that maybe it IS something. I'm also positively amazed at landing in Unknown/Polyphaga, I thought it has to be a dried plant and took a picture because it was weird and I love weird things, now I want to find more of those!.

I tried to figure out from your described method-of-analysis if it would make sense for me to tag a possible group-level ID on the observations based on what project you tagged them in, or if it's best to wait for someone watching the project to have a look. If you have any advice for us mini-bioblitzers on what to do when we see observations tagged so that we can provide the most support for our wisers, please drop a note.

Meanwhile, thank you again! This has brought much happiness. :)

Thanks a lot for your feedback! These projects are intended to help identifiers find observations without ID that are likely to match their taxa of interest (instead of having to review all observations without ID, in search for what they are interested in).

Submit an ID if you think the observation does match this ID. The yellow tag might help you, but you need to check on your own if you agree with the ID suggested. Sometimes, your ID may be more precise than the ID suggested, sometimes your ID may be broader that the ID suggested, or may be completely different.

Publicado por jeanphilippeb hace 5 meses

If you are uncertain - you can leave the yellow banner ID as a comment - to prompt the next identifier (who may not yet know about the projects)
