[API-users] Multiple taxonKey values with maps API ?

Ah, my apologies. I thought it seemed an unusual question.

My email client didn’t show the subject on my phone so I missed the “maps” bit which wasn’t in the message.

I did have a version at one point with that during dev. I’d expect it will be doable for a few combinations (3-5) or so. Please watch the github issue for progress.

A tile for the western hemisphere showing:

House sparrows: http://api.gbif.org/v2/map/occurrence/density/0/0/0@1x.png?srs=EPSG:4326&bin=hex&taxonKey=5231190&style=purpleYellow-noborder.poly

Mackrel: http://api.gbif.org/v2/map/occurrence/density/0/0/0@1x.png?srs=EPSG:4326&bin=hex&taxonKey=8596&style=purpleYellow-noborder.poly

Both: http://api.gbif.org/v2/map/occurrence/density/0/0/0@1x.png?srs=EPSG:4326&bin=hex&taxonKey=5231190&taxonKey=8596&style=purpleYellow-noborder.poly

I think the both example is what Scott's asking for, and it isn't supported<https://github.com/gbif/maps/blob/master/vectortile-server/src/main/java/org/gbif/maps/resource/Params.java#L69>.

It is supported with an ad-hoc search, but these are usually much slower: http://api.gbif.org/v2/map/occurrence/adhoc/0/0/0@1x.png?srs=EPSG:4326&bin=hex&taxonKey=5231190&taxonKey=8596&style=purpleYellow-noborder.poly

I've made an issue for it: https://github.com/gbif/maps/issues/27 since it's not the first time this has been requested. The previous request was for different colours to be applied to each taxon, which is more complicated and different to just adding several taxa's occurrences together.

I’m not sure if this went unanswered but the API has supported that since the beginning Scott.

Or have I misunderstood something?
In haste,

Are there any plans to allow passing any of the primary parameters (taxonKey, datasetKey, country, publishingOrg, publishingCountry) more than once. e.g.


or comma separated. Perhaps up to some max number?

Or is there a good reason not to suppor that? Woud it lead to jobs that run too long on your servers?

Thanks! Scott
