rvernet 0.8.2 2021-05-13

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • vignette fix

rvertnet 0.8.0 2020-01-29

NEW FEATURES

  • searchbyterm() and bigsearch() reworked: both functions now have the first parameter as ..., which accepts any valid query parameter. There were so many query parameters for these functions it was a bit overwhelming. See ?searchbyterm docs for details (#66)

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • decode the request URL before printing to the R console so users can more easily see what request they have done (#67)
  • vignette title fix (#68)

BUG FIXES

  • searchbyterm() fix: booleans need to be converted to VertNet’s expected 0/1 instead of true/false (#66)

rvertnet 0.7.0 2018-04-17

BUG FIXES

  • add month and day params to searchbyterm (#64)

rvertnet 0.6.2 2017-10-11

BUG FIXES

  • A small data source used in one function was on the web, and was moved - that data source now within the pkg as quite small, and now pkg won’t break when the file is moved again (#61) (#62)

rvertnet 0.6.0 2017-08-15

Added Code of Conduct.

NEW FEATURES

  • Now using crul package for HTTP requests instead of httr (#57)
  • Note that verbose parameter has been replaced with messages throughout the package.
  • Now with function for search for trait data: traitsearch() (#55)

DEFUNCT AND DEPRECATED

  • All dump functions are now defunct. Those functions tried to help users work with bulk Vertnet data - the setup has gotten too complex (#56)

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

BUG FIXES

rvertnet 0.5.0 2016-09-23

NEW FEATURES

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • Use dplyr::bind_rows instead of the deprecated dplyr::rbind_all (#51)
  • remove personal email address from tests (#52)
  • Namespace base R pkg fxn calls (methods/stats/utils), and removed some package dependencies that we didn’t really need (plyr) (#54)

rvertnet 0.4.4 2016-04-14

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • Updated docs to better indicate how to use the cursor feature (#49)
  • Now using explicit encoding specification when using httr::content() (#47)

BUG FIXES

  • Fixed externalptr error in the internal vert_GET() function (#48)

rvertnet 0.4.1 2015-12-02

BUG FIXES

  • Fixed a bug in bigsearch() in which we had forgotten to do internal conversion of logical input to 0/1 needed by the web API (#46)

rvertnet 0.4.0 2015-11-26

NEW FEATURES

  • New set of functions to make working with VertNet data dumps easier. dump_links() gives you links to various data dump resources; dump_init() initialized a SQLite database connection; dump_tbl() creates a dplyr::tbl object, which can then be used in a dplyr query. This setup requires that the user manually download data dumps uncompress, and load into SQLite. We hope to make this process easier in the future. (#36)

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • Fixes to vertmap() for new ggplot2 version (#43)
  • Added note to docs for bigsearch() for how to read in data after obtaining the data (#44)

BUG FIXES

  • Fix to the searchbyterm() function. When the parameter stateprovince was used, lead to error, as that param requires different handling than other params. (#45)

rvertnet 0.3.4 2015-09-16

NEW FEATURES

  • New function vert_id() to get occurrence records by occurenceid, that is, single occurrence ids. (#40)

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • Explicitly import non-base R functions (#39)

BUG FIXES

  • Lowercase occurenceID to occurrenceid to simplify life (#41)

rvertnet 0.3.0 2015-06-26

NEW FEATURES

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS

  • Replaced data.table import with dplyr
  • Using skip_on_cran() (#38)
  • Minor vignette updates (#35)
  • Metadata now returned in data requests (#33)
