Using internet of turtles to match previously identified turtles

What Wildbook are you working in? Internet of Turtles

What is the entire URL out of the browser, exactly where the error occurred? NA

Can you describe what the issue is you’re experiencing?
We have uploaded identified (untagged) individuals to IOT in the hopes of being able to use it to identify individual turtles in our study site without having to manually go through and try and match the scale patterns to the 50 individuals in our database. When uploading the same photo of a turtle that we used to originally identify it, no match came up. How do we use IOT to see if turtles have been previously identified?

Can you provide steps on how to reproduce what you’re experiencing?

Hi @vinpturtles

Since matching occurs by viewpoint, species, and location ID, I suspect one of these is in discrepancy. Do you have links for the Encounters that aren’t coming up as matches for each other so I can research this?

I’m resolving this as a duplicate since we’re tracking this discussion over here: Hawksbill IDs - IoT
