Encounter without a viewpoint assigned - why not?

What Wildbook are you working in? ACW

What is the entire URL out of the browser, exactly where the error occurred?
Proposed match - source encounter that doesn’t have a viewpoint assigned: https://africancarnivore.wildbook.org/encounters/encounter.jsp?number=2357155f-baf9-4c2d-9cbd-7af9676f99ee
Match results page where above encounter is proposed match #3: Wildbook for Carnivores

Can you describe what the issue is you’re experiencing?
I ran a match for an encounter record and in reviewing the proposed matches, I saw that the 3rd one is of a leopard with the opposing viewpoint. When I went to check the viewpoint assigned, I can’t see any sign of a viewpoint having been assigned.

Not sure why?


Another example:
Match results page: https://africancarnivore.wildbook.org/iaResults.jsp?taskId=f64b035c-262b-4516-89e0-adee81382ab2
Encounter that is match #2 above: https://africancarnivore.wildbook.org/encounters/encounter.jsp?number=ea2c7505-a1be-4280-8f1b-596f540a6038

There’s no viewpoint showing when I hover over the annotation in the encounter that is the source for match #2, which is the reason it’s not being excluded from the match results based on it being the opposite viewpoint from the target encounter.

For reference - the 2 examples above came from a spot check of 3 encounters’ match results in an upload batch from yesterday.

Thank you for this!
We will take a look asap!

Thanks @MarkF. Btw, I just noticed a post from mid-June with the same issue: No viewpoint on annotation?
