How can I download data from iNaturalist?

Modified on Wed, 06 Dec 2023 at 02:54 PM

Anyone with an account can export data from iNaturalist as a spreadsheet in csv format

Use the Explore page to get a set of observations you want to export, then, click on Filters and click on Download.

Or you can go directly to the Export page.

If you plan to publish a paper using iNaturalist data, we recommend downloading iNaturalist data from the Global Biodiversity Information Facility because they will issue a citable DOI (see this FAQ for more details).
