Good Day ESRI Community, Aside from R toolkit for accessing GBIF data, does ArcGIS have a toolkit to access GBIF species data? Secondly, does anyone know if GBIF have OGC compliant services (WFS, WMS) that can be streamed into ArcGIS for mapping and analysis? Thank you for your time and do appreciate the communities insight.
Stephen Coppola GBIF doesn't support WMS (see http://www.gbif.org/developer/maps ). It can provide data in CSV format (e.g., downloads), is that sufficient? Declaration: I'm chair of the GBIF Science Committee and am always interested in learning what users want from GBIF, and whether GBIF provides data in the formats people need.
