Registry API

http://api.gbif.org/v1/

This API works against the GBIF Registry, which makes all registered Datasets, Installations, Organizations, Nodes, and Networks discoverable.

Internally we use a Java web service client for the consumption of these HTTP-based, RESTful web services. It may be of interest to those coding against the API, and can be found in the registry-ws-client project.

Please note the old Registry API is still supported, but is now deprecated. Anyone starting new work is strongly encouraged to use the new API.
