Odonata Central Launches New Website!

Odonata Central is a citizen science website dedicated to dragonflies and damselflies — insects of the order Odonata. The site has been a repository for data on Odonata for many years. But now with a new, streamlined website, contributing your sightings is easier than ever before!

Revamping Odonata Central is a major project that BirdsEye has been contributing toward. Along with our Dragonfly ID App, we hope these efforts bring renewed attention to dragonflies and damselflies. 

The data collected by Odonata Central helps scientists understand the distribution, biogeography, biodiversity, and identification of Odonata. On the new site, you can enter all of your observations and manage your personal lists, with a streamlined data entry and browsing system. Powerful data filters make it easy to sort through species lists and find exactly what you’re looking for. And you can now import observations directly from iNaturalist. Plus, iNaturalist sightings are included on maps so you can view other sightings near you! 

Odonata Central is extremely user-friendly and ready for your data. Register for an account today!
