Right, the BOTH example is what I'm looking for. Great, didn't realize that
adhoc would work! The use case is this WIP project
https://github.com/ropensci/phylodiv where the idea is to let users quickly
visualize biodiversity of taxa of a phylogeny (e.g., comparing clade A vs.
B, species A vs. B, genus X vs. genus Y, etc.), and there's a lot more
possible user questions I can handle if I can include multiple taxa in a
map API query. So I think adhoc may be fast enough to give users that
quick response they'd need for exploring many questions quickly (much
faster than downloading full occurrence data, and just a bit slower than
