rgbif users out there (including
pygbif users, if any)
GBIF wants to get feedback on proposed changes to their API with regard to the
eventDate field, as well as related fields
Give any feedback here https://github.com/gbif/gbif-api/issues/4 Or discuss here, and I can relay information over there
There are two questions at hand:
I lean towards making
eventDate contain date ranges, which it currently doesn’t. Does anyone have strong objections against this?
I vote to get rid of
year fields, but would anyone not like this? Does anyone use these fields?
definition of eventDate
Another issue is this: https://github.com/gbif/gbif-api/issues/3 That is, how is
eventDate defined. Any thoughts on this?
