Important for the implementation phase
If your project is being implemented, please report (at least) once a year on the measures implemented and results observed. Please keep important documents carefully as evidence of the implementation of your project.
In our fourth video you will learn how to publish news and reports on your project page via your "My AgoraNatura". (from 3:49)
If you upload pictures for a news item, the first picture uploaded becomes the cover picture!
Use pictures for your documentation: Use the GPS recognition and date display to easily and authoritatively prove the place and day of origin. It is best to walk at least 20 to 30 metres into the area and wait a while with the camera activated until the device has found the position more precisely. If possible, title your pictures directly and add/notate important information.
To ensure that the data is not lost when you upload your images, it is best to save your images in a cloud that you can access when writing your news. When sending e.g. by mail, especially the GPS information is often removed automatically.
Unfortunately, you have to reduce the images to a maximum of 1 MB before uploading them. You achieve this by reducing a copy so that the image is still approx. 1,500 to 2,000 pixels wide at the long edge. Please keep the original file with the larger, higher resolution photo.
Feel free to take another look at our tips for good pictures in our Checklist, you know from preparing your project description. After all, the news about the implementation of your project can be the best advertisement for your next project!
If you use your smartphone, you will find the section for good pictures at the end of our Checklist a guide to setting the coordinate detection.
