  Name: Global Biodiversity Information Facility Maps API
  Abbreviation: GBIF Maps API
  Description: The mapping api is a web map tile service making it trivial to visualize GBIF content on interactive maps, and overlay content from other sources. The following features are supported: 1) Map layers available for a country, dataset, taxon (species, subspecies or higher taxon), publisher; 2) User defined styling by selecting a predefined color palette, or by providing styling rules; 3) Density of content is clustered to a user defined cluster size (regardless of zoom level); 4) The ability to customise content shown by the basis of record (E.g. Specimens, Observations, Fossils etc). For certain basis of record types, the time period may be customised by decade; e.g. map the observations of a species since 1970
