mddmaps: Download World Mammal Maps

Lightweight maps of mammals of the world. These maps are a comprehensive collection of maps aligned with the Mammal Diversity Database taxonomy of the American Society of Mammalogists. They are generated at low resolution for easy access, consultation and manipulation in shapefile format. The package connects to a binary backup hosted in the Digital Ocean cloud service and allows individual or batch download of any mammal species in the mdd taxonomy by providing the scientific species name.
