My name is Norman and I’m a university researcher working on a computer vision research project. I’d like to collect a dataset from iNaturalist photos. I’ve read the API documentation and tried using GBIF as suggested to download the data I need, however that only gives urls to the photos. It looks like downloading those images in bulk is also subject to rate limits like the RESTful API, as my access was cut off after a little while.
I have a list of all the observation ids and urls that I would like to download. Are there any alternatives for me to retrieve these images or should I just download the images one by one at the API limit rate?
