The species distribution data downloaded from GBIF hast to be unzipped before importing the csv file.
v.in.gbif saves the data to an intermediate GDAL VRT - Virtual Datasource which will be imported by v.in.ogr. The VRT data set can be copied to a user defined directory by -c flag and used in any GDAL aware software. As some column names in the original data set are similar to SQL reserverd key words, the columns will renamed with the prefix g_.
By the -r flag an on-the-fly reprojection of the data can be invoked using v.import, if the location is not in WGS84. Quality of on-the-fly reprojection is not garanteed. The traditional reprojection procedure in GRASS GIS can also be used instead.
