The service from the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) provides access to a data warehouse compiled by the provider of biological research data relevant to ecosystem conditions. It collects datasets developed by researchers studying environmental conditions and makes it available via APIs. The data warehouse combines listings of separate datasets maintained by other providers for comprehensive listings across ecological science.
API methods support search for data on a particular species, for a particular region, or spanning a particular time period. Methods also provide structural information about the data warehouse, such as a summary listing of datasets available, data elements and datatypes within the datasets, geographic regions for which data can be accessed, and listings of species tracked in the datasets.
