The hydrographr R-package

Scalable hydrographic data processing in R

The hydrographr R-package

We have developed the hydrographr R-Package that facilitates the download and data processing of the Hydrography90m data (which can be visualized at the IGB-GeoNode). The package is maintained at https://github.com/glowabio/hydrographr and the installation procedure is available here.

hydrographr provides functions to allow scalable hydrographical data extraction and analysis workflows. The R-functions are wrappers around the open-source geospatial GDAL and GRASS-GIS software that run in the Linux environment and enable fast and memory-efficient data processing.

We will soon upload a vignette that showcases the functionality of hydrographr. In the meantime, feel free to explore the package and drop us a line here if you have any questions.

We thank NFDI4Biodiversity and NFDI4Earth for providing the funding that helped us getting the hydrographr package together!
