Dear GBIF community,
I am a new user of GBIF so please forgive me if there is an obvious answer to my question. If this is the case, if someone could point me to further reading I would appreciate it.
I am interested in reviewing the GBIF occurrence dataset for all amphibians over the last 5 years. Two questions arose after downloading and reviewing the data (https://doi.org/10.15468/dl.hdhb5x):
- I assume that EventDate refers to the date of the observation (for HUMAN_OBSERVATION) or specimen collection (PRESERVED_SPECIMEN). Is this correct?
- If the answer to the question above is yes, is it possible to also download the accession / data upload date for the same set of occurrence data? I expect there is a lag for specimen data but perhaps not for observations.
Thanks for any information.
