Pull weather data from around the world.
weatherData is an R package that fetches weather data - like temperature, pressure, humidity, wind speed, and more - from the Web as a clean data frame.
The package is hosted on GitHub, or it can be installed from CRAN.
To begin exploring the weather data, you must decide on four parameters:
- Location: which city, zipcode or weather station are you interested in?
- Time interval: over what period of time do you want to pull data from?
- Level of detail: how many records per time interval?
- Type of weather metric: are you examining temperatures? Precipitation? Or something else?
In addition to pulling data, the package also offers a number of preloaded datasets that are ready for instant analysis.
