Originally designed application in the context of resource-limited plant research
and breeding programs, 'waves' provides an open-source solution to spectral data processing
and model development by bringing useful packages together into a streamlined pipeline.
This package is wrapper for functions related to the analysis of point visible and
near-infrared reflectance measurements. It includes visualization, filtering, aggregation,
preprocessing, cross-validation set formation, model training, and prediction functions to
enable open-source association of spectral and reference data. This package is documented
in a peer-reviewed manuscript in the Plant Phenome Journal
