Jerseyguy: You may check to see how many points you have by finding the user name you created in our list of user points:

As for your badge number, you may see it one of two ways: 1- go to and enter your credentials. Once you have successfully entered your credentials, you will see your badge, and 2- your badge should also be on the screen each time you submit an image for approval.

Please let us know if you have trouble resolving any of your two questions.

geoDude55: Another good suggestion, but one that might require a little more work and take some time to implement. We will certainly look into it as an alternative, as it does sound very user-friendly.

doylesangel: That is a great suggestion. We will do what we can to incorporate user points onto the main Image Detective cataloging screen.

geoDude55: Thank you for your feedback! We have added the sun azimuth angle to Image Detective for user convenience. This angle is the clockwise angle in degrees from north to the sun, and as geoDude55 mentioned, this should aid in rotating the astronaut image when locating the center point.

Good luck!

Is the training video too long to any one? Would include a text version of the steps which can be printed be helpful?

The ability to register an email address to be used to send credential reminders to for in case you forget your credentials was added. Use of it is optional. It can be managed on the detective login page.

The option to use a maps view in the window used for selecting photographs to work on was added. A new checkbox in the window for selecting photos, "Show Maps", will switch to showing maps with the nadir coordinates annotated instead of showing the photograph images when it is checked. To switch back to showing the photograph images, uncheck the box. This allows you to toggle between maps and photographs.

An issue with detective badges not showing up when the badge button is clicked was fixed. The badge button is on the small window you get when you submit a record for a photo and only shows up if you have a badge.

Thanks for letting us know, mike_nasaman. The issue has been corrected!

Thanks Mike for your input about the points. We have to check into what happened and fix it. We will gladly accept any other suggestions which you may have to make our Image Detective activity easier to use or more attractive to new users.

I think it would be interesting to pick or submit a request for our own selected images that we want to locate from the uncatalogued images on the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth website. Does anyone else think they would like to be able to pick some images for themselves to locate?

Even some of the "easy" imagery picks are a challenge to locate. If anyone comes up with a type of search pattern or other helpful hint to first find the general location on the map I would appreciate it. This would be even before trying to align the image to it's location on the map.
