Possible to access observations in traditional project with public api access route?


We are trying to access observations in our traditional project using the API. Is it possible? If so, could you post an example of the query you would use to access the observations in a traditional project?

Thank you in advance!

not sure exactly what you’re asking for here.

the observation search API endpoint is https://api.inaturalist.org/v1/observations, and you can query for observations from a specific project by using the project_id parameter combined with the numeric id or text slug of the project (ex. https://api.inaturalist.org/v1/observations?project_id=plants-of-texas or https://api.inaturalist.org/v1/observations?project_id=544).

for some more information about that API endpoint, see https://api.inaturalist.org/v1/docs/#!/Observations/get_observations, and for more information on recommended API practices, see https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/api+recommended+practices.

that said, it would be helpful to understand what exactly you’re trying to do. the iNaturalist API may not always be the best way to retrieve data, and the endpoint i mentioned above may not be the best endpoint in every case.
