MazamaSpatialUtils: Mazama Science spatial data and utility functions.



This package contains code to convert various spatial datasets into .RData files with uniformly named identifiers including:

The parameters listed above will be found in the @data slot of each spatial dataset whose source data has an equivalent field. The only field guaranteed to exist in every dataset is countryCode.

The following additional standards are applied during the data conversion process:

Utility functions allow users to determine the country, state, county and timezones associated with a set of locations, e.g. environmental monitoring sites.

The uniformity of identifiers in the spatial datasets also makes it easy to generate maps with data from any dataset that uses standard ISO codes for countries or states.
