The abundance of wildlife occurrence datasets that are currently accessible can be valuable for efforts such as species distribution modeling and range delineation. However, the task of downloading and filtering occurrence records is often complex due to errors and uncertainties that are present in datasets. This repository provides a high-level framework for acquiring and filtering occurrence data that are freely available through the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) API and eBird Basic Dataset (EBD).
