airsis_parseData: Parse AIRSIS Data String

Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

View source: R/airsis_parseData.R

Description

Raw character data from AIRSIS are parsed into a tibble. The incoming fileString can be read in directly from AIRSIS using airsis_downloadData() or from a local file using readr::read_file().

The type of monitor represented by this fileString is inferred from the column names using airsis_identifyMonitorType() and appropriate column types are assigned. The character data are then read into a tibble and augmented in the following ways:

  1. Longitude, Latitude and any System Voltage values, which are only present in GPS timestamp rows, are propagated foward using a last-observation-carry-forward algorithm'

  2. Longitude, Latitude and any System Voltage values, which are only present in GPS timestamp rows, are propagated backwords using a first-observation-carry-backward algorithm'

  3. GPS timestamp rows are removed'
