NEW FEATURES

  • occ_download() and occ_download_prep() gain a new parameter format for specifying the type of download. options are DWCA (default), SIMPLE_CSV, or SPECIES_LIST. SIMPLE_CSV and SPECIES_LIST are csv formats, while DWCA is the darwin core format (#352)
  • now throughout the package you can pass NA in addition to NULL for a missing parameter - both are removed before being sent to GBIF (#351)
MINOR IMPROVEMENTS
  • replace tibble::as_data_frame/tibble::data_frame with tibble::as_tibble (#350)
  • key and gbifID in the output of occ_data/occ_search/occ_get have been changed so that both are character class (strings) to match how GBIF encodes them (#349)
  • fix some test fixtures to use preserve exact bytes so that cran checks on debian clang devel don't fail (#355)
BUG FIXES
  • fix to occ_download: fail with useful message when user does not pass in queries as character class (#347)
  • fix to occ_download: fail with useful message now when user/pwd/email not found or given (#348)
