The Clifro Datatype Object

Description

Create a cfDatatype object by selecting one or more CliFlo datatypes to build the clifro query.

Usage

1
2
cf_datatype(select_1 = NA, select_2 = NA, check_box = NA,
  combo_box = NA, graphics = FALSE)

Arguments

select_1

a numeric vector of first node selections

select_2

a numeric vector of second node selections

check_box

a list containing the check box selections

combo_box

a numeric vector containing the combo box selection (if applicable)

graphics

a logical indicating whether a graphics menu should be used, if available

Details

An object inheriting from the cfDatatype class is created by the constructor function cf_datatype. The function allows the user to choose datatype(s) interactively (if no arguments are given), or to create datatypes programatically if the tree menu nodes are known a priori (see examples). This function uses the same nodes, check box and combo box options as CliFlo and can be viewed at the datatype selection page.

Value

cfDatatype object

Note

For the 'public' user (see examples) only the Reefton Ews station data is available.

Currently clifro does not support datatypes from the special datasets (Ten minute, Tier2, Virutal Climate, Lysimeter) or upper air measurements from radiosondes and wind radar.

#  2  --> Datatype:        Wind
#  1  --> Datatype 2:      Surface Wind
#  2  --> Options:         Hourly Wind
# (2) --> Another option:  No

# Or select the datatype programatically (using the selections seen above)
