6 Adding species names to identifications
This section takes a look at the three ways you can get help with species identification on iSpot: via the Species Browser, iSpot ID keys and the hierarchical tree.
The Species Browser is a tool for showing links between the thousands of species that have been observed on iSpot, with the most frequently seen species in each group migrating to the top of the list.
Identification keys are designed to help you work out what type of wildlife you have seen. With iSpot keys, answer as many questions as you can, and the key will help you by sorting through the list of species it knows and suggesting which is most likely.
When posting an observation, iSpot uses the taxonomic hierarchy from integrated species dictionaries to help you check and attach scientific and common names to the species you are trying to identify.
