rsk-class: Class to Store Rsk Data

Description Author(s) References See Also


Class for data stored in the “Ruskin” format used by RBR [1], including both rsk SQLite files and the ASCII txt exported files.

A rsk object may be read with read.rsk or created with as.rsk. Plots can be made with plot,rsk-method, while summary,rsk-method produces statistical summaries and show produces overviews. If atmospheric pressure has not been removed from the data, the functions rskPatm may provide guidance as to its value; however, this last function is no equal to decent record-keeping at sea. Data may be retrieved with [[,rsk-method or replaced with [[<-,rsk-method.
