Hi Annie,

the GBIF IPT and API mailing lists are also available through mail-archive.com<http://mail-archive.com> which offers a search across the entire archive:



As for a mapping I am not aware of any. But the IPT maps to DwC terms and the GBIF API mostly uses DwC terms, but has additions and slight modifications in some areas.

I'm new to the list, and though I've looked at the archives I find them hard to maneuver (very nested; can't just 'search on page').

Can anyone point me to a reference/lookup table that maps the IPT field names and content to the names and content of the fields that are currently within a GBIF download (.xlsx example is attached, with 241 columns)?

Thanks if you can, and may you be well,
