worldmet (development version)

  • fix join problem due to dplyr updates.

worldmet 0.9.6

CRAN release: 2022-10-05

  • importNOAA() will now display a progress bar when multiple years of met data are to be imported.

  • Improved the formatting of the popups in getMeta() in line with openairmaps::networkMap().

  • Added the provider argument to getMeta(), allowing for users to define one or more leaflet basemaps. Uses the same default as openairmaps::networkMap().

  • exportADMS() now invisibly returns the input data, in line with, e.g., readr::write_csv().

worldmet 0.9.5

CRAN release: 2021-04-20

  • do not add precip to ADMS export

  • Cloud cover data mostly spans 1 to 8 Oktas and no zero (clear sky); use ceil_hgt = 220000 (unlimited) to indicate clear sky when cloud cover is reported as missing.

  • Do not use ftp for site information.

worldmet 0.9.4

CRAN release: 2021-04-09

  • Fix precipitation. The precip_12 gives the sum of the precipitation over the past 12 hours and the sum of this column should be the annual total in mm. precip spreads the 12-hour total evenly across the previous 12 hours. worldmet no longer tries to combine 12 and 6 hour totals.

worldmet 0.9.3

CRAN release: 2021-03-29

  • Catch missing data error and report missing when importing data using importNOAA

worldmet 0.9.2

CRAN release: 2020-09-17

worldmet 0.9.1

  • fix bug when lat and lon provided in getMeta
  • fix bug when several years are selected and columns are different lengths when n.core = 1

worldmet 0.9.1

  • Significant changes due to NOAA storage formats and different storage locations
  • Remove options for precipitation and present weather in importNOAA; just return everything
  • Return data as tibble

worldmet 0.8.8

CRAN release: 2020-02-12

  • export getMetaLive to allow users direct access to all meta data and easy re-use without re-downloading.
  • deprecate fresh option in getMeta.
  • Assume 9999 is missing for visibility (was 999999)
  • add option path to allow users to save met data as an rds file.
  • fix short WBAN codes.
  • make sure all meta data are used and not only sites with most recent year

worldmet 0.8.4

CRAN release: 2018-02-27

  • query live meta data when using getMeta
  • fix bug when data not available for a year when using parallel processing
  • parallel processing for sites and years
  • use read_csv for meta data (read.csv seems very slow in R 3.4.3)

worldmet 0.8.0

CRAN release: 2017-12-18

  • downloads now from webserver rather than ftp. Should be faster and allow more downloads. Thanks to Stuart Grange.
