Weddell Seals - Voting on Low Confidence Tiles


#41

I really don’t know how to vote on this polygon; the blobs looks to be too big. What do you think?


#42

I know what you mean, I wasn’t so sure my self so voted them in; but they don’t compare well to the examples on the campaign or the ones I found further down the map :thinking:

#43

Hmm how far are you zoomed in @Shaul? I would err on the side of voting them in so Michelle can give them the old expert review.


#44

I saw this one too, I agree, hard to decide. I marked it Seals and therefore left it up to Dr. Michelle to decide.


#45

You may see the size comparison in the lower right corner - I think that I was on “+1” zoom.

And eventually I did vote for seals there, but they still look big.


#46

That image looks like he’s zoomed in at +2

This is what they look like at 0 (zero) image


#47

Huh. That is a tough one. I agree with they Yes votes but they sure are big and dark!


#48

Yeh, we’ll just leave that one to @Michelle4 to figure out that conundrum :wink:


#49

I’m 24.8K just now and I’m not going to bed until I’ve reached 25K…shouldn’t take long should it :thinking:


#50

Oh wow! That’s really interesting - I don’t think those are seals but on the other hand I don’t know what they are! Could be humans (snow machines or something)… do you know the context here? Was there a research base nearby?


#51

@EmeraldEyes @Shaul @Mel_Nod… Way way far up on this tile I found this: Like you said @Michelle4 could be a smaller research station, and these could be snowmobiles?


#52

That’s a very good find, @T_Boechler! I didn’t see them; was that on #290253?


#53

Yes! Ok, so that original image with the five dark blobs, those are probably Hagglunds, or maybe snow machines. I only say snow machines because there doesn’t seem to be a groomed road in the snow, and that’s what I’d expect to see if they were large, tracked vehicles. Very cool!


#54

Yes but very far up from where the poly was.
I looked around “a little” for a bigger research station but didn’t see one.


#56

@Shaul @EmeraldEyes @Michelle4 @Mel_Nod

Here’s a zoomed out photo…you can see a few trails in the snow around it.


#57

Ohh interesting - great detective work @T_Boechler!!


#58

Yes, very good! This is a perfect example of why I always go back to the idea to zoom out and gain context! Seals aren’t going to be located right next to these kinds of trails :slight_smile:


#59

Whatever they are, they’ve been down checking out the seals :smiley:
You can make out a trail which I’ve marked along side it in red.


#60

one of the other trails from the plane goes left of the buildings, and eventually goes over the rocks to another set of buildings - research station - not sure which one. Maybe the first shot is just their “airport”!!!

I just hope you never ask us to count penguins :pray: :sweat_smile:
