Data Dump of Range and Point Map Data
« : March 23, 2014, 06:42:07 AM »
Hello Matthew, Jeff and any eBird Experts out there,

Is there a way to generate a spreadsheet or CSV file of map data points?  We are trying to refine our release criteria based upon latest sightings of a particular species.  For instance, if I select Red-breasted Merganser, Current Year, DuPage County, I see dozens of sightings.  I would love to build a table that would report the following data elements:
Location/ Hot Spot
Date of sighting
Number observed

Is there any way to download this into a table?

Thank You,
Ron

The best option would be to look at the eBird API, which has some options that may work.

This is the one that may be best:

Thanks Craig!  I just need to figure out how to decipher locale designations.
