This is an informal, online session where anyone is welcome to bring their questions or ideas about using tools such as the iDigBio API (Application Programming Interface) to work with biodiversity occurrence data in R. Community members of all backgrounds (collections staff, researchers, IT, etc.) and levels of programming experience (including R novice) are encouraged to use these office hours as a time to discover and discuss API data access, issues, and solutions.
The American Museum of Natural History, Florida State University, George Mason University, STEPPE – Geological Society of America, University of Wisconsin – Madison, and the Yale Peabody Museum have joined to establish Enhancing Paleontological and Neontological Data Discovery (ePANDDA), a new application programming interface (API).
