What is the Dragonfly ID app?

Dragonfly ID features bar charts built from the OdonataCentral database of sightings, recent sightings submitted to OdonataCentral displayed on maps, crowd-sourced text, images and more. Status and distribution information for odonates in North America!

How did it come about?

Dragonfly ID is a collaboration between BirdsEye and the folks at OdonataCentral and the Xerces Society with special thanks to the membership of the Dragonfly Society of the Americas and the users of OdonataCentral, the Migratory Dragonfly Partnership, and Pondwatch for their contributions. We are bringing the power of the BirdsEye infrastructure to create all new dragonfly finding tools for avid dragonfliers and people interested in identifying the species around them.
