thanks for the R hints, rgbif and dismo works quite nicely.

I've just uploaded a new addon:

new addon: v.in.gbif to import GBIF species distribution data via GDAL
vector VRT

the addon imports downloaded and unzipped GBIF data via GDAL vector VRT to
the location without filtering non-existing/false latlong coordinates. these
points ca may be edited by the information given in the column locality
later on.

testing and improving welcome. :-)

best regards
