Lifemapper Tools

Documentation for using Web Services

Lifemapper Web Services allow users to List, Get and Post an experiment as well as individual elements used for an experiment. The required elements for a Lifemapper experiment are an occurrence set id, an algorithm parameter set id, a model scenario id, and a group of projection scenario ids. The steps for posting an experiment include:

  1. Pick an Occurrence Set
    • Pick from existing
    • Post a new occurrence set
      • From CSV
      • From Shapefile
  2. Pick an Algorithm Parameters Set
    • Pick from existing
    • Post new
  3. Pick a model scenario
  4. Pick a group of projection scenarios

Once you have all of the parts, you can submit a new experiment either through URL parameters, or via the message body of an HTTP POST request.
