Provides Templates for Metadata Files Associated with Species Range Models

Range Modeling Metadata Standards (RMMS) address three challenges: they (i) are designed for convenience to encourage use, (ii) accommodate a wide variety of applications, and (iii) are extensible to allow the community of range modelers to steer it as needed. RMMS are based on a data dictionary that specifies a hierarchical structure to catalog different aspects of the range modeling process. The dictionary balances a constrained, minimalist vocabulary to improve standardization with flexibility for users to provide their own values. Merow et al. (2019) describe the standards in more detail. Note that users who prefer to use the R package 'ecospat' can obtain it from <>.

rangeModelMetadata provides convenient access to creating metadata objects associated with species range models in R.

This is the development version of the package; stable versions are hosted on CRAN.
