Hello! I used the iNatrualist API to download a couple hundered research-graded and cc-by-nc licenced observation images for a computer vision project recently, and I wonder how should I cite the observation properly for a paper.
I have read the https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/help#cite guidline, but there are some confusion on how I can acquired the DOI for the observations I downloaded form a couple months ago. I downloaded all the images using the request.get method off of the iNatrualist API instead of downlaoding it as a registered user on the GBIF, so there wasn’t any record for my downloads.
I used the request.get method to pull the data of about 500s observations(including the images) under the Rodentia taxa. However, within the data structure, I don’t see any information on the DOI of the corresponding data set for each observation.
Is there a way to identify the DOI for the data I acquired for the purpose of citation?
Much appreciated for your help.
