Sighting Curation - Codex

Pending Sightings

Check information about Pending Sightings either on your Codex profile page, where you can view your own pending sightings, or from the Public queue, where you can reach other users’ pending sightings.

Assigning Annotations

  1. On a Pending Sightings page, assign annotations by clicking the ANNOTATE PHOTOGRAPHS button on the Overview section of the page.
  2. You will be directed to the ANIMALS section of the page.
  3. Click the + button next to the photo of the Animal you want to add annotations with.


  • A Sighting is a time and place where one or more animals are documented.

  • If the sighting contains only one animal, then only annotations under Animal 1 are required.

  • If the sighting contains multiple animals, click the ADD ANIMAL button to annotate a different individual.

  • This will create a new section named Animal X. *X is the number in which order you added the Animal.

Create a Sighting

  • After you’re done annotating a pop-up window with a Ready to commit message will appear.

  • Click the COMMIT button to submit your Sighting report.
