Species Projections Service Description

The Lifemapper Species Projections Service allows users to get a projection or list projections that fit desired criteria.

Each projection is the application of a ruleset generated by a model onto a climate scenario of related environmental layers. There are usually projections for each climate scenario that matches the climate scenario used to generate the model.

Getting a List of Projections

If you call http://svc.lifemapper.org/api/v2/sdmProject/json with an HTTP GET request, a list of available projections will be returned.

The items returned in this list can be filtered using a number of url parameters. A full list of the available filter parameters can be found in the Lifemapper Swagger IO documentation. You can use that interface directly to explore the service within a web browser.

Getting an Individual Projection

You will need the projection id number to return an individual projection. You can browse the list of projections to find the projection you would like, and just copy and paste the link.

Get an Individual Projection Method explains in more detail how this service works.
