Elasticsearch Interface

For a time iDigBio offered direct access to our Elasticsearch interface. Direct queries to the iDigBio Elasticsearch service are now deprecated because Elastico does not suggest that their query API can be secured against malicious use. It it also possible to construct very CPU expensive queries and since our ES cluster serves our interactive portal, we felt we can't let people run long-running queries on the same cluster. The iDigBio Search API should be used instead.

A public-facing interface to the iDigBio back-end Elasticsearch system is no longer available.
