Client for the Data API of openSenseMap.org

Download environmental measurements and sensor station metadata from the API of open data sensor web platform < https://opensensemap.org> for analysis in R. This platform provides real time data of more than 1500 low-cost sensor stations for PM10, PM2.5, temperature, humidity, UV-A intensity and more phenomena. The package aims to be compatible with 'sf' and the 'Tidyverse', and provides several helper functions for data exploration and transformation.


CRAN status Travis build status AppVeyor Build status Coverage status

This R package ingests data from the API of opensensemap.org for analysis in R.

Features include:

  • osem_boxes(): fetch sensor station ("box") metadata, with various filters
  • osem_measurements(): fetch measurements by phenomenon, with various filters such as submitting spatial extent, time range, sensor type, box, exposure..
    • no time frame limitation through request paging!
  • many helper functions to help understand the queried data
  • caching queries for reproducibility

The package aims to be compatible with the tidyverse and sf, so it is easy to analyze or vizualize the data with state of the art packages.

Usage

Complete documentation is provided via the R help system: Each function's documentation can be viewed with ?<function-name>. A comprehensive overview of all functions is given in ?opensensmapr.

# install dependencies for sf (see https://github.com/r-spatial/sf#installing) 
sudo dnf install gdal-devel proj-devel proj-epsg proj-nad geos-devel udunits2-devel
 
# install suggested packages 
R -e "install.packages(c('maps', 'maptools', 'tibble', 'rgeos', 'sf',
    'knitr', 'rmarkdown', 'lubridate', 'units', 'jsonlite', 'ggplot2',
    'zoo', 'lintr', 'testthat', 'covr')"

build

To build the package, either use devtools::build() or run

R CMD build .

Next, run the tests and checks:

R CMD check --as-cran ../opensensmapr_*.tar.gz
# alternatively, if you're in a hurry: 
R CMD check --no-vignettes ../opensensmapr_*.tar.gz

release

To create a release:

  1. make shure you are on master branch
  2. run the tests and checks as described above
  3. bump the version in DESCRIPTION
  4. update CHANGES.md
  5. rebuild the documentation: R -e 'devtools::document()'
  6. build the package again with the new version: R CMD build . --no-build-vignettes
  7. tag the commit with the new version: git tag v0.5.0
  8. push changes: git push && git push --tags
  9. wait for all CI tests to complete successfully (helps in the next step)
