nhdR

Tools for querying, downloading, and networking both the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) and NHDPlus datasets.

Installation

CRAN policy is that no package can write to a persistent location by default. As a result, nhdR writes all data to a temporary location unless a temporary = FALSE argument is passed to the nhd_plus_get/nhd_get functions. Alternatively, nhdR will automatically write data to a persistent location if the nhdR_path environment variable is set. To do this, add the following line to your .Rprofile:

Sys.setenv(nhdR_path = file.path(rappdirs::user_data_dir(appname = "nhdR",
      appauthor = "nhdR")))

Your .Rprofile file can be edited using the usethis::edit_r_profile() function.

Stable version from CRAN

install.packages("nhdR")

or development version from GitHub

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("jsta/nhdR")

This package also requires an installation of 7-zip that can be called via the command line using 7z or 7za.exe (check if your machine is good to go with nhdR:::has_7z()).

Usage

NHD Plus

NHD-Plus exports are organized by vector processing unit (vpu). See below for a low resolution vpu map (also nhdR::vpu_shp). A hi-res version can be found here.
