The hydrographr R-package
Scalable hydrographic data processing in R
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.
