Adds local_datetime and tz_used columns based on either the most common timezone in the original data or a user supplied timezone. This function is meant to used in a pipe with the realtime_dd() function.


realtime_add_local_datetime(.data, set_tz = NULL)



Tibble created by realtime_dd


A timezone string in the format of OlsonNames()


Date from realtime_dd is supplied in UTC which is the easiest format to work with across timezones. This function does not change Date from UTC. Rather station_tz specifies the local timezone name and is useful in instances where realtime_add_local_datetime adjusts local_datetime to a common timezone that is not the station_tz. This function is most useful when all stations exist within the same timezone.
