NIWA Taxon Attribute Database Web Service API

The NIWA Taxon Attribute Database holds sets of attributes associated with a range of taxonomic concepts - e.g. species. These attributes may represent known facts about a species, or one persons notes. Attributes can be of various types and may include references to external resources such as maps and images.

This simple RESTful API enables downstream users to obtain the attributes for a taxon concept in an xml or json format.
