I just wanted to share tool I made in Python using pyinaturalist API (https://pyinaturalist.readthedocs.io/en/stable/index.html).
It can be found on my github page: https://github.com/lazar-zenit/iNat_API
It’s purpose is to save all observation counts within some place using taxon_id and place_id, so it can be used to make checklists, make comparisons with literature data etc…
Here are screenshots of data from raw, to normalized to cleaned:
One thing I noticed is that this is way faster way to download data from the new places. It takes some time for observations to show up on new place page, but this way makes it faster.
I hope you will find this helpful. I’m happy to hear your thoughts about it.
