Sites/Apps Using iNaturalist’s API

  • Owls Near Me - enter your location and see which owls have been seen near you.
  • Taxa Challenge - Test how well you know the plants and animals around you.
  • Rocky Beaches - a tidepooling guide for Pillar Point in California.

This will be WONDERFUL!!! Has this been decided on/set up yet? If yes, is there a link?

World Tour figures for
the hard/inefficient part is positioning the markers on the map based on where the center of gravity of observations is for an observer. loarie describes generally how he’s doing it here:
(!/Observations/get_observations_observers), then downloading all observations in the area for each top observer, and then probably running it through some algorithm in R to find that center of gravity.

iNat Visualizations Using R

iNaturalist Visualization: Flexdashboard (R markdown)


Edits to wiki:

  • Fixed the heading markup (’# Heading’ rather than ‘=Heading=’).
  • Added link to “API recommended practices” and a couple projects (pyinaturalist, rinat)

This topic should probably be moved to the “Tutorials” category, rather than “General”.

@cmcheatle can we include examples that use iNat’s API, eg ?

I dont see any reason why not.
