Access Data Programmatically

USA-NPN data are available via standard Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), which can be accessed using the following approaches:


  • The rnpn R library facilitates access to observational and geospatial data. To get started explore the vignettes. 
  • The Geoserver Request Builder is a browser-based tools that facilitates the creation of URLs for downloading geospatial (raster) datasets.


Shared Code

  • USA-NPN Github
  • Advanced Phenology Information System (APIS) code repositories enable access and analysis of USA-NPN, PhenoCam and other phenology data. This publication provides further context and examples.
  • The phenor R library supports phenology model development and accesses USA-NPN and other phenology data resources. A NEON Tutorial provides further information.
