Names Export Format
The current format for exports from the AFD is a CSV (comma separated values) file, which can be used in Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheets, as well as easily imported into relational databases like Oracle or MS SQL Server.
We're also investigating exports in different XML schemas but at the moment no specific schema has been decided.
The CSV format contains a lot of information and hopefully will fulfil most people's data needs. We include for each name a GUID and a timestamp for the name itself, the taxonomic concept, and primary reference.
