What format is the GBIF key? I’m only seeing 7-digit numbers coming back from the API. Will it always be an integer or should I allow for alphanumeric?
You should allow for integers, noting that 32 bit integers (e.g. a Java
int or PostgreSQL
integer) are not sufficient, as we have values beyond 2³¹. (
bigint are fine.)
The lowest numbered record is currently https://www.gbif.org/occurrence/4021
Thanks. Glad I asked!
