Hi, I am trying to find a way to get a feed of species observation data from the NatureWatch NZ database into ArcGIS Online using the iNat API  The data needs to be refreshed automatically with new observations from the NatureWatch database, so uploading a static file from drive is not an option.


I am looking at a specific NatureWatch project called "Piwauwau NZ Rock Wren monitoring" which can be accessed in JSON or CSV format via the following urls:

(these only return the first page of results - I haven't yet figured out how to get all pages)


The data can also be accessed in KML and Atom formats, which I have been able to add directly as web layers into ArcGIS Online, however these formats do not contain all of the original attribute columns.


I have tried adding the CSV version as a web layer, however this returns the following error, which I suspect might be because there are spaces in some of the column names.:

Does anyone know a way of getting the JSON feed from the iNat API into ArcGIS Online as a layer?
