Locality Photo

Use this option for photos that are of the actual locality itself, eg mine dumps, mine buildings, historical images, etc. Do not post mineral photographs in this category!

Locality

If the locality is not filled in (it will be if you add the photo from the locality display page), you can enter either the full name, a partial name or the locality number. Hitting the "Check" button will allow you to choose the correct location. You can enter just a portion of the locality string here, but if you type in a partial locality where there are too many possible locations, the program will not accept this.

Title

Enter a short title (eg. 'View of the mine entrance')

Comments

For locality photographs, please enter a description of what is seen in the photo. A date that the photo was taken is helpful as well, and if the scale of features in the photo is not obvious from the surroundings (for example, a photo of a vein section in a mine) please enter the size of the feature or a scale reference in the description.
