JDB stores pictures and texts related to the species (plants, animals, fungi) and their habitats. Entering your JDB posts related to a specific species or ecosystem, you should:
- Choose a category: plants, animals, mushrooms, ecosystems;
- Select the appropriate sub-category (if any) to orient the species (for example, the sub-category “Trees” in the “Plants” category
- Post pictures of the species or ecosystem you have taken with the following characteristics:
– Photo: Picture of one or more of a species or ecosystem;
– Title: Title of the photo with the name of the species (in English, Serbian, Bulgarian or Latin). For example: Maple. If you do not know the name of the species, you will only write “Species” as the title of the publication. The site administrator will take care to determine the exact name of the species, if possible and to replace it in the title. Photos of ecosystems are published in the appropriate category and target one of the four main types of ecosystems: Forest, Grassy, Freshwater, Мarine ecosystems
Location: Point on the map where the picture was taken;
– Date: Specify the time you took the picture (month and year)
– Description: Text to the photo describing the name of the site (locality, city, etc.), coordinates, etc. information at your discretion.
As a result of your publications, JDB will be able to process your data and perform the following real-time analysis:
Number of data contributors. Number of posts from each contributor. Number of photos posted – total in different categories and subcategories.
– Number of species by category and ecosystem published so far.
– Show and automatically count all species and ecosystems that have been captured on a site after entering its name in the search engine (by name of locality, city, etc.)
– Show and automatically count all locations where a species or ecosystem has been captured after entering its name in the search engine.
– Show and automatically counting all species and ecosystems captured during a particular month of the year (by entering the month in the search engine);
Analysis on more than one metric. For example, information on identified species by month and locality or the number of localities of a given species established in a given month
