Set Up Your GBIF Username and Password
Some rgbif features require GBIF login details. Most notably if you want to run
occ_download, you need to supply
- user : Your GBIF username
- pwd : Your GBIF password
- email : Your e-mail
The best way to allow rgbif access to your GBIF credentials is to save them in your .Renviron file.
The easiest way to edit this file is by running:
Edit your .Renviron to look like this:
GBIF_USER="jwaller" GBIF_PWD="safe_fake_password_123" GBIF_EMAIL="[email protected]"
Now you should be able to run
occ_download with no user, pwd, or email.
