I have an interest in spiders, plants, ecosystem conservation, and plant-insect interactions. I try to systematically identify the least-identified flora and fauna of Mississippi, especially spiders and flowering plants. I use the Explore page to find taxa that are under-identified, for example this: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=37&quality_grade=needs_id&reviewed=false&view=species&iconic_taxa=Plantae,Arachnida. I began identifying distinctive species (e.g. male Colonus species and spring-flowering Cirsiums), and I have moved to more complicated Taxa such as Misumenini and Solidago. I still have a long way to go and I always appreciate correction on my IDs.

I dabble in GIS and I love to integrate iNaturalist into interactive maps. Other than the first one, none of these are optimized for smartphone use.
