Hungary - iNaturalist World Tour

Hungary is the 87th stop on the iNaturalist World Tour. The top observer, @philsansum, has observations clustered in the northeastern part of Hungary along with @beidts, @ahospers, and @deserti around places like Bükki National Park and Hortobágy National Park. The second top observer, @veszt is a biologist and plant breeder from Hungary, his observations are distributed widely across the country. There is a cluster of observers such as @rudynature and @ikomposzt around the capital of Budapest and other users such as @gergely_katona clustered around Debrecen, Hungary's second largest city after Budapest. @balzs9's observations are clustered on the shores of Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe. @cathyp is currently 10th on the leaderboard but doesn't show up on the map since her observations are mostly from September of this year and the figure was last updated on September 1st.

The number of observations per month jumped up in the summer of 2018 and again in 2019.

In addition to being a top observer, @veszt is the top identifier and leads in plant identifications. @cossus and @ldacosta lead in insect and bird IDs respectively. Thanks to other top identifiers such as @kastani and @cs_melitta.

What can we do to get more people in Hungary using iNaturalist? Please share your thoughts below or on this forum thread.

If we would like to improve the observations, we need help from the national parks and universities.
In Hungary the citizen sciences are not popular.

iNaturalist not really known in Hungary. Maybe bigger advertising, or news wich could be connacted with Hungary.
Also there are some other more popular Hungarian citizen sience projeczs like Herpterkep or Vadonleső or Openbiomaps or may be inaturalist somehow should connect with them.
