Darwin Core Archive Publishing

The following downloads are occurrence data packages from collections that have chosen to publish their complete dataset as a Darwin Core Archive (DWCA) file. A DWCA file is a single compressed ZIP file that contains one to several data files along with a meta.xml document that describes the content. The archives below contain three comma separated (CSV) files containing occurrences, identifications (determinations), and images data. Fields within the occurrences.csv file are defined by the Darwin Core exchange standard. The identifications and images files follow the DwC extensions for those data types.
