Tools for easy generation of (life-history) traits maps based on species range (extent-of-occurrence) maps.
Changes in version 0.3-0 SIGNIFICANT USER-VISIBLE CHANGES o View_rmap() project viewer replaces the RangeMapper() GUI. o RangeMap.fetch(spatial = FALSE) returns a rmap.frame object. o Plot(rmap.frame-object) is based on ggplot2. o If a parallel backend is registered processRanges() runs in parallel. o processRanges() allows all sql data types when saving metadata (contributed by Joan Maspons). o when FUN is an R function rangeMapSave() can run in parallel (contributed by Joan Maspons). o ramp() is a quick alternative to initiate a project; it combines all the functions from rangeMap.start() to processRanges() and rangeMap.save() but is less flexible as compared with a step-by-step project building.
NEW FUNCTIONS o View_rmap() shiny-based project viewer. o as.rmap.frame() data.table to rmap.frame conversion o tables() sqlite databse summary. o rangeMapProjInfo() rangeMap sqlite project summary. o ramp() a quick project starter. o theme_rangemap() a ggplot theme o palette_rangemap() a color palette.
Changes in version 0.2-8 BUG FIXES o The package works now with RSQLite (>= 1.0.0).
Changes in version 0.2-7 NEW FEATURES o WKT2SpatialPolygonsDataFrame()
Changes in version 0.2-6 BUG FIXES o fixed a bug in bio.merge().
Changes in version 0.2-4 NEW FEATURES o The old tcltk GUI has been replaced with a GUI based on shiny.
Changes in version 0.2-3 NEW FEATURES o method assemblageFetch() to extract species sets (species assemblages) & the associated life history data.
Changes in version 0.1-7 NEW FEATURES o method metadataUpdate() to compute taxa-level metadata once a project is set. o A new utility function, rangeFetch(), to fetch a range from a rangeMapper project.
Changes in version 0.1-5
BUG FIXES o fixed a bug in vertices().
NEW FEATURES o vertices is a new method of general use. Extract vertices from a SpatialPolygonsDataFrame and optionally applies an aggregating function to each Polygon. o rangeTraits() & processRanges () changed to work with vertices().
Changes in version 0.1-3
NEW FEATURES o rangeMapProcess-methods. Small-range polygons (i.e. smaller than a canvas cell) will return as many cells as there are 'Polygon'- s(e.g. each polygon will snap to the nearest canvas cell).
