Climate and Ecological Data for the GSODR Package

This data-only package was created for distributing data useful with GSODR and used in examples for the GSODR package vignettes.

Due to the installed package, >9Mb, this package is only available from GitHub.

Authors: Adam Sparks, Tomislav Hengl, and Andrew Nelson
Maintainer: Adam Sparks
Depends: R (>= 3.2.0)
Suggests: GSODR

Six data frames of climate data are provided from various sources for GSOD station locations and can be joined with data formatted by the GSODR package using the STNID column.

Quick Start


This package is only available from GitHub due to its large size. It provides optional data for use with the GSODR package, some of which are demonstrated with examples in the GSODR documentation.

remotes::install_github("adamhsparks/GSODRdata", build_vignettes = TRUE)

Using GSODRdata

See the GSODR vignette, Working with spatial and climate data from GSODR and GSODRdata, for use and examples.

Keeping GSODRdata updated

With each new release of GSODR, the GSODRdata package is also updated. To keep your local installation up-to-date, please use:



If you find bugs or have an idea to make this package better, please file a report with us.
