Species interaction datasets supported by GloBI can be accessed in various ways. For most, this website and its pages may be helpful to poke around the data. Other projects like GoMexSI, Encyclopedia of Life, and Ecosystem Explorer present GloBI data in a human readable format.
Exploratory, interactive queries can be executed through SPARQL and Cypher (see more examples) endpoints or by using the REST-y GloBI Web API. For those that use R, rglobi is available to explore interaction data. rglobi can also be used to execute Cypher queries.
GloBI’s incomplete aggregated interaction dataset archives:
- interactions.tsv.gz contains species interactions tabulated as pair-wise interactions in a gzipped tab-separated values format.
citations.tsv.gz contains data citations in a gzipped tab-separated values format.
- interactions.csv.gz contains species interactions tabulated as pair-wise interactions in a gzipped comma-separated values format.
citations.csv.gz contains data citations in a in a gzipped comma-separated values format.
- taxonMap.tsv.gz describes how names in existing datasets were mapped into existing naming schemes in a gzipped tab-separated values format.
taxonCache.tsv.gz contains hierarchies and identifiers associated with names from naming schemes in a gzipped tab-separated values format.
- darwin core-ish archive contains species interactions data as a Darwin Core Archive using a custom, occurrence level, association extension.
- neo4j v2.3.12 graph database contains a neo4j database snapshot containing a graph representation of the species interaction data.
