<h1>itis-dwca</h1>
<p>A DwC-A version of the ITIS taxonomic database, by
permission of ITIS. I download
the <a href="http://www.itis.gov/downloads/index.html">database dump from the ITIS website</a>,
then use <a href="https://github.com/GlobalNamesArchitecture/dwca-hunter">dwca-hunter</a>
by the <a href="http://globalnames.org/">Global Names Architecture</a> to generate
a DwC-A file from ITIS.
</p>
<p>If everything's working correctly, you should get the latest DwC-A files from:</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://gaurav.github.com/itis-dwca/latest/version.txt">http://gaurav.github.com/itis-dwca/latest/version.txt</a>: the version information for the latest version (created on November 17, 2017).
</li>
<li><a href="http://gaurav.github.com/itis-dwca/latest/dwca.tar.gz">http://gaurav.github.com/itis-dwca/latest/dwca.tar.gz</a>: the DwC-A file for the latest version (based on the ITIS database published on October 27, 2017).
</li>
<li><a href="http://gaurav.github.com/itis-dwca/latest/taxa.txt.gz">http://gaurav.github.com/itis-dwca/latest/taxa.txt.gz</a>: A Gzipped CSV file containing a list of all the taxa from the DwC-A file.
</li>
</ul>
<p>These files were created as part of the <a href="http://taxosaurus.org/">Taxosaurus</a> TNRS service developed during the <a href="http://phylotastic.org/">Phylotastic</a> hackathon at <a href="http://www.nescent.org/">National Evolutionary Synthesis Center</a>, Durham NC, USA.
