Feb 10, More on Data - All Years

Looking at OOS data for observations by day across all years.

Jun 23 has been especially busy with 1921 total records.

Peak days occur across several months. The period Jun 11 to Jul 20 has over 1000 per day. This 40 day period is our peak.

Here the plot of species observed by day. This is the total of each day for all years.

Peak number of species observed on a day has been 111 on Jun 14 and Jun 23. The other three days of the top five occur in between the top two. Both Jun 14 and Jun 23 had observations from 73 counties. Interesting to me is Jun 15 has 110 species with over 500 fewer total observations than Jun 14 and Jun 23.

While the scales don't match, comparing observations to species recorded you see one following the other early in the season, then relative species numbers holding up longer than observations.

I'm honestly impressed that we somehow manage to ID the 1,000 specimens per day. It takes a lot of different people to keep up with that number of IDs.

Our peak daily submission is over 600. The top day in the database is Jun 23, 2019 with 584 Research Grade observations. The number of iNat observations for that day was 621. That's comparing the database to iNaturalist, so there are bigger days out there - example is Jun 21, 2019 where there were 627. While not 1000s, 600+ is pretty impressive.

The analysis itself is impressive! And still not as awesome as all of the time identifiers spent developing their expertise and poring over the submissions (even the not-so-great photos like mine!) to increase our knowledge of this fascinating order.
Thank you !!
