Define a filter for the eBird Basic Dataset (EBD) based on a set of counties This function only defines the filter and, once all filters have been defined, auk_filter() should be used to call AWK and perform the filtering.

auk_county(x, county, replace = FALSE)

Arguments

x

auk_ebd or auk_sampling object; reference to file created by auk_ebd() or auk_sampling().

county

character; counties to filter by. eBird uses county codes consisting of three parts, the 2-letter ISO country code, a 1-3 character state code, and a county code, all separated by a dash. For example, "US-NY-109" corresponds to Tompkins, NY, US. The easiest way to find a county code is to find the corresponding explore region page and look at the URL.

replace

logical; multiple calls to auk_county() are additive, unless replace = FALSE, in which case the previous list of states to filter by will be removed and replaced by that in the current call.

Value

An auk_ebd object.

Details

It is not possible to filter by both county as well as country or state, so calling auk_county() will reset these filters to all countries and states, and vice versa.

This function can also work with on an auk_sampling object if the user only wishes to filter the sampling event data.
