I’m working on a project that uses the rbison and rgbif, we are mostly focused on plants data from samples collected in the US. As someone new to programming and R these packages have been extremely helpful.
I noticed some differences in the rbison and rgbif packages and was wondering if there were going to be any efforts to improve the rbison package? I ran into some trouble the other day when I attempted to use the bison_solr() function to page through BISON results and ended up sending repeated nonsense to the interface (my fault I should have been more careful) resulting in degraded performance of their Solr interface. The occ_data() and occ_search() functions in the rgbif package handle requests internally and has the added feature of a hard maximum of 200,000, which prevents new users like me from doing foolish things. Is this something that will be implemented in the rbison package?
