occ_count(taxonKey = NULL, georeferenced = NULL, basisOfRecord = NULL,
  datasetKey = NULL, date = NULL, typeStatus = NULL,
  catalogNumber = NULL, country = NULL, hostCountry = NULL, year = NULL,
  from = 2000, to = 2012, type = "count", publishingCountry = "US",
  nubKey = NULL, protocol = NULL, curlopts = list())

Arguments

taxonKey

Species key

georeferenced

Return only occurrence records with lat/long data (TRUE) or those that don't have that data (FALSE, default). Note that you can also get record count with occ_search() by setting limit=0

basisOfRecord

Basis of record

datasetKey

Dataset key

date

Collection date

typeStatus

A type status. See typestatus() dataset for options

catalogNumber

Catalog number. PARAMETER GONE.

country

Country data was collected in, two letter abbreviation. See http://countrycode.org/ for abbreviations.

hostCountry

Country that hosted the data. PARAMETER GONE.

year

Year data were collected in

from

Year to start at

to

Year to end at

type

One of count (default), schema, basis_of_record, countries, or year.

publishingCountry

Publishing country, two letter ISO country code

nubKey

Species key. PARAMETER NAME CHANGED TO taxonKey.

protocol

Protocol. E.g., 'DWC_ARCHIVE'

curlopts

list of named curl options passed on to HttpClient. see curl_options for curl options

Details

There is a slight difference in the way records are counted here vs. results from occ_search(). For equivalent outcomes, in the occ_search() function use hasCoordinate=TRUE, and hasGeospatialIssue=FALSE to have the same outcome for this function using georeferenced=TRUE.

Value

A single numeric value, or a list of numerics.

Supported dimensions

That is, there are only a certain set of supported query parameter combinations that GBIF allows on this API route. They can be found with the call occ_count(type='schema'). They are also presented below:
