When I want to look at the distribution overlap for two (or possibly more) species using the map option on the website, the map shows the same icon for any listed species. It would be really helpful to be able to have species-specific icons for at least a couple distinct species, if not three or four.
If there is some kind of open-source application that would provide the kind of output I am looking for using a download from the website, I would appreciate hearing about it. Thanks.
Thanks for the reply. I’ll look at the API. As of now I don’t have experience with R, although I have been meaning to have a look. In past lives I did a lot of coding and graph creation, so maybe an old dog will be able to learn one more trick.
Can you suggest any books for someone wanting to learn R and its capabilities?
@davek there are many online resources about how to get started with R. For example, you could check out this “R for beginner” document: https://cran.r-project.org/doc/contrib/Paradis-rdebuts_en.pdf (although it is quite old, I think it can still be helpful).
There are also specific tutorials on how to make maps with R, here are some I could find:
