Can you please explain how this works?

What determines the # of loots value and the dots on a map?

Clearly there are hundreds of dots on this map, and only 32 loots?

I'm trying to use this data for dictating population density of various mobs. For example these 5 mobs are the only ones in gfaydark found only in the area shown by the maps. Can I trust the # of loots? Should I go by dots? If I should use dots, can you add a counter to the pages?

Geoloc and loots are not the same. There are much more observations about the spawns in the zone than actual loots.

Now the caveat with the current geoloc is that it does not draw distinct spawn but any loc where a given creature has been spotted. It could be 1 orc spotted in 100 locs or 10 orcs in 10 locs.

It was a preference in settings that I needed to set. Thanks!
