Obtaining range data

After an extensive search for latitude/longitude based range data the source I have settled on using is Lifemapper (http://lifemapper.org/index.shtml), which is an aggregator of a number of record databases, both museum specimens and sight record databases (such as eBirds).

My first attempt at using the data is to download the data sets in CSV format and aggregate the data in my local machine. Future plans are to get the data sets programatically so that I can periodically recreate the range maps without re-downloading all the relevant data sets.
