toolGetMapping(
  name,
  type = NULL,
  where = NULL,
  error.missing = TRUE,
  returnPathOnly = FALSE,
  activecalc = NULL
)

Arguments

name

File name of the mapping file. Supported file types are currently csv (, or ; separated), rds and rda (which needs to have the data stored with the object name "data"!). Use codetoolConvertMapping to convert between both formats

type

Mapping type (e.g. "regional", "cell", or "sectoral"). Can be set to NULL if file is not stored in a type specific subfolder

where

location to look for the mapping, either "mappingfolder", "local" (if the path is relative to your current directory) or the name of a package which contains the mapping. If set to NULL it will first try "local", then "mappingfolder" and afterwards scan all packages currently listed in getConfig("packages")

error.missing

Boolean which decides whether an error is returned if the mapping file does not exist or not.

returnPathOnly

If set to TRUE only the file path is returned

activecalc

If set, this argument helps to define the first package within which the mapping has to be sought for. This happens via finding in which package the active calc function is located.

Value

the mapping as a data frame
