I’m trying to download all the observations uploaded to iNaturalist in my country, Portugal. The total number of records amounts to almost 600000.
I tried using https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/export to export subsets of the whole dataset (which I would then merge together), but even that is slow and probably too heavy on iNats servers.
What is the best way to download this data? I know R language, so solutions in R are also welcome. I’m not too familiar with the API but could also give it a try
Since Portugal is a member of the network, the site admins have access twice per year to an export of all of the observations from Portugal. I recommend reaching out to @luis2.
Alternatively, breaking the export down into several smaller subsets by filters (especially date and/or taxa) is recommended.
