parzer parses messy geographic coordinates
You may get data from a published study or a colleague, and the coordinates may be in some messy format that you’d like to clean up to e.g., have all decimal degree numeric data.
sp::char2dms: is most similar to
parzer::parse_lon. However, with
sp::char2dmsyou have to specify the termination character for each of degree, minutes and seconds.
parzerdoes this for the user.
biogeo::dms2dd: very unlike functions in this package. You must pass separate degrees, minutes, seconds and direction to
dms2dd. No exact analog is found in
parzer, whos main focus is parsing messy geographic coordinates in strings to a more machine readable version
