What is visualizeR?

visualizeR is an R package for climate data visualization, with special focus on ensemble forecasting and uncertainty communication. It includes functions for visualizing climatological, forecast and evaluation products, and combinations of them. Find out more about this package at the visualizeR wiki

This package is part of the climate4R bundle, formed by loadeR, transformeR, downscaleR and visualizeR. The recommended installation procedure is to use the install_github command from the devtools R package:

devtools::install_github(c("SantanderMetGroup/transformeR", "SantanderMetGroup/visualizeR"))

NOTE: Note that transformeR is a dependency for visualizeR. Note that transformeR also includes illustrative datasets for the climate4rframework.
