An R-package for the preparation for geographic point occurrence data in biogeographic analyses. A major focus is on securing data quality and providing ready to use output for biogeographic software. The main functions include:
- Point-in-polygon classification
- Species richness maps
- Range size calculations
- Automated preliminary conservation assessment
- Input preparation for the DES model in PyRate
You can find short instructions for the major functionalities in the Readme, and more detailed information and tutorials on the wiki pages. Detailed documentation for individual functions is available via
?SpGeoCod). For comments, questions and bug reports, please use the issues section or speciesgeocodeR@googlegroups.
The package uses an example data set of Lemur distributions from the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (www.gbif.org). There is also a python version of SpeciesgeocodeR for some functionality of the package. SpeciesgeocodeR is mainly based on functions of the ggplot2, raster, rgdal, rgeos and sp packages.
