bcdc_tidy_resources {bcdata}R Documentation

Provide a data frame containing the metadata for all resources from a single B.C. Data Catalogue record

Description

Returns a rectangular data frame of all resources contained within a record. This is particularly useful if you are trying to construct a vector of multiple resources in a record. The data frame also provides useful information on the formats, availability and types of data available.

Usage

bcdc_tidy_resources(record)

Arguments

record

either a bcdc_record object (from the result of bcdc_get_record()), a character string denoting the name or ID of a resource (or the URL) or a BC Geographic Warehouse (BCGW) name.

It is advised to use the permanent ID for a record or the BCGW name rather than the human-readable name to guard against future name changes of the record. If you use the human-readable name a warning will be issued once per session. You can silence these warnings altogether by setting an option: options("silence_named_get_data_warning" = TRUE) - which you can set in your .Rprofile file so the option persists across sessions.

Value

A data frame containing the metadata for all the resources for a record

Examples


try(
  airports <- bcdc_get_record("bc-airports")
)

try(
  bcdc_tidy_resources(airports)
)
