Get surveys by species

Lists a summary of the surveys and their locations associated with a species (taxon id) as specified by 'species'.

Downloads may not work for species that have thousands of locations (e.g. koala). You will need to download subsets of the data as described below.

WildNet Koala Locations is an export of koala locations derived using this function.

Example outputs;
- GEOJSON (default): https://apps.des.qld.gov.au/species/?op=getsurveysbyspecies&&taxonid=568
- KML: https://apps.des.qld.gov.au/species/?op=getsurveysbyspecies&taxonid=568&f=xml
- CSV: https://apps.des.qld.gov.au/species/?op=getsurveysbyspecies&taxonid=568&f=csv

Species profile search can be used to locate species information (by name or a taxonomy search). It uses the Get species by ID function to display species profiles with images and maps and uses the Get surveys by species function for downloading data.

WetlandMaps provides a map interface to display the data derived from Get sites, Get surveys and Get surveys by species functions with other spatial layers (such as protected areas and wetland mapping).

Examples using different inputs (csv format specified):

Mandatory Variables:
taxonid: A unique id that identifies a particular species. Use Get species to access taxonids.
