Everyone can see the coordinates unless the taxon is threatened.
Public coordinates shown as a random point within 10KM of the true coordinates. True coordinates are only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation.
Coordinates completely hidden from public maps, true coordinates only visible to you and the curators of projects to which you add the observation. Observations with private coordinates will still be used to verify place check lists.
Seriously Matt, how do you do it? I was pretty psyched to see this fellow, but he definitely did not feel the same, and trotted off post haste. I guess something more than a 18-55mm would have helped...
