R extension package to integrate sensor data into R using the 52°North Sensor Web Client API.
The sensorweb4R package is not on CRAN yet, so please download and install the package manually. The first option is using the package
devtools, which also works well for your own fork or development versions by other contributors.
So, if you don't have
To also install the vignettes run:
devtools::install_github("52North/sensorweb4R", build_vignettes = TRUE)
Alternatively, you can download the source code and install the package from source. For this to work must have both git and R (see documentation here for Windows) on your path. Then run the following commands:
git clone https://github.com/52North/sensorweb4R R CMD INSTALL sensorweb4R
Take a look at the demos to see how to use the package:
library(sensorweb4R) demo(package = "sensorweb4R")
For some of the demo's you will need:
install.packages("maptools") install.packages("mapdata") install.packages("rgdal")
On Fedora/RedHat/CentOS you will need the following yum packages to be able to install
yum install gdal gdal-devel gdal-static proj-devel proj-epsg
On Mac OS X you will need GDAL e.g. precompiled from here.
Depending on the version of the OS, you will probably not find a suitable
rgdal in CRAN. To install manually:
- download "package source" from
- from a terminal:
cd ~/Downloads/ sudo R CMD INSTALL -configure-args'-with-proj-include=/usr/local/lib' rgdal_0.9-1.tar.gz
Then restart R or RStudio.
Futher user documentation is in the R help and the vignettes:
vignette(package = "sensorweb4R")
When installed from source or GitHub, run the command Rd2pdf on the regular command line from the parent directory of the package. This will create the reference manual, which describes all functions in the package:
R CMD Rd2pdf sensorweb4R
