epa_createMetaDataframe: Create Sites Metadata Dataframe

Description Usage Arguments Value References

View source: R/epa_createMetaDataframe.R

Description

After addtional columns(i.e. datetime, and monitorID) have been applied to an EPA dataframe, we are ready to pull out site information associated with unique monitorID.

These will be rearranged into a dataframe organized as deployment-by-property with one row for each monitorID.

This site information found in tbl is augmented so that we end up with a uniform set of properties associated with each monitorID. The list of columns in the returned meta dataframe is:

1
2
3
4
5

7
> names(p$meta)
 [1] "monitorID"             "longitude"             "latitude"             
 [4] "elevation"             "timezone"              "countryCode"          
 [7] "stateCode"             "siteName"              "agencyName"           
[10] "countyName"            "msaName"               "monitorType"          
[13] "monitorInstrument"     "aqsID"                 "pwfslID"              
[16] "pwfslDataIngestSource" "telemetryAggregator"   "telemetryUnitID"
