Tools to link geographic data with hydrologic network, including lakes, streams and rivers. Includes automated download of U.S. National Hydrography Network and other hydrolayers.
Hydrologic Network Linking Data and Tools for R
This package provides tools for linking latitude and longitude (geopoint) data with hydrologic networks, such as the U.S. Geologic Survey's National Hydrologic Dataset (NHD) or they global hydroLakes dataset. The function automates the access and download of these large, cumbersome datasets and provides a number of techniques for geographic data to the hydro networks.
hydrolinks will soon be submitted and available on CRAN. Until then, it is available for install directly from github.
