If you don’t have a GPS enabled phone or camera, or if you have old photos from a pre-digital camera, we may be able to elevate your account settings to make you a Trusted Contributor.
Trusted Contributors have additional privileges.
They gain the ability to provide the location details manually, by clicking on the point on the aerial photograph of a Google map, or by specifying the location coordinates. They can also specify the sighting date manually.
