The Ecoengine serves many different data types in an flexible mapping interface. For the first time, data from the University of California Natural Reserve System has been integrated with Wieslander Vegetation Mapping Project, CalPhotos and Berkeley Natural History Museums specimens. This combination of resources gives a holistic view of the natural history of California and beyond.

To view a complete list of the data sets that are being served through the mapping API, please see the Data Sources page. 

To view a list of institutions that are contributing data, please see the Participating Institutions page. 

We invite users to browse our tutorials and discover data connections with the Explore and Compare Tools.

The Ecoengine provides a flexible platform for querying and visualizing data. We encourage developer innovation through the D3, Python and R packages under Code Examples.

The entry points include two mapping and visualization tools; the Explore Tool (top left), which has search and filtering functions, and the Compare Tool (top right) which allows you to import results from Explore and make comparative maps for sharing. The API is also accessible through Developer Tools and through the ROpenSci package.
