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.
Got this picture just in time, not great but better than nothing, a moment later the beaver smacked its tail on the pond surface, and dissappeared below the surface, possibly back into its lodge to the right.
