arkdb

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Flat text files provide a robust, compressible, and portable way to store tables from databases. This package provides convenient functions for exporting tables from relational database connections into compressed text files and streaming those text files back into a database without requiring the whole table to fit in working memory.

codemetar

cran
99.99th

Percentile

The 'Codemeta' Project defines a 'JSON-LD' format for describing software metadata, as detailed at <https://codemeta.github.io>. This package provides utilities to generate, parse, and modify 'codemeta.json' files automatically for R packages, as well as tools and examples for working with 'codemeta.json' 'JSON-LD' more generally.

contentid

cran
99.99th

Percentile

An interface for creating, registering, and resolving content-based identifiers for data management. Content-based identifiers rely on the 'cryptographic' hashes to refer to the files they identify, thus, anyone possessing the file can compute the identifier using a well-known standard algorithm, such as 'SHA256'. By registering a URL at which the content is accessible to a public archive, such as <https://hash-archive.org>, the content identifier can serve many functions typically associated with A Digital Object Identifier ('DOI'). Unlike location-based identifiers like 'DOIs', content-based identifiers permit the same content to be registered in many locations.

EcoNetGen

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Randomly generate a wide range of interaction networks with specified size, average degree, modularity, and topological structure. Sample nodes and links from within simulated networks randomly, by degree, by module, or by abundance. Simulations and sampling routines are implemented in 'FORTRAN', providing efficient generation times even for large networks. Basic visualization methods also included. Algorithms implemented here are described in de Aguiar et al. (2017) <arXiv:1708.01242>.

EML

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Work with Ecological Metadata Language ('EML') files. 'EML' is a widely used metadata standard in the ecological and environmental sciences, described in Jones et al. (2006), <doi:10.1146/annurev.ecolsys.37.091305.110031>.

emld

cran
99.99th

Percentile

This is a utility for transforming Ecological Metadata Language ('EML') files into 'JSON-LD' and back into 'EML.' Doing so creates a list-based representation of 'EML' in R, so that 'EML' data can easily be manipulated using standard 'R' tools. This makes this package an effective backend for other 'R'-based tools working with 'EML.' By abstracting away the complexity of 'XML' Schema, developers can build around native 'R' list objects and not have to worry about satisfying many of the additional constraints of set by the schema (such as element ordering, which is handled automatically). Additionally, the 'JSON-LD' representation enables the use of developer-friendly 'JSON' parsing and serialization that may facilitate the use of 'EML' in contexts outside of 'R,' as well as the informatics-friendly serializations such as 'RDF' and 'SPARQL' queries.

99.99th

Percentile

Provides the ability to create dynamic citations in which the bibliographic information is pulled from the web rather than having to be entered into a local database such as 'bibtex' ahead of time. The package is primarily aimed at authoring in the R 'markdown' format, and can provide outputs for web-based authoring such as linked text for inline citations. Cite using a 'DOI', URL, or 'bibtex' file key. See the package URL for details.

neonstore

cran
99.99th

Percentile

The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) provides access to its numerous data products through its REST API, <https://data.neonscience.org/data-api/>. This package provides a high-level user interface for downloading and storing NEON data products. While each of NEON data products consist of hundreds or thousands of individual files. Unlike 'neonUtilities', this package will avoid repeated downloading, provides persistent storage, and improves performance. 'neonstore' can also construct a local 'duckdb' database of stacked tables, making it possible to work with tables that are far to big to fit into memory.

pmc

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Monte Carlo based model choice for applied phylogenetics of continuous traits. Method described in Carl Boettiger, Graham Coop, Peter Ralph (2012) Is your phylogeny informative? Measuring the power of comparative methods, Evolution 66 (7) 2240-51. <doi:10.1111/j.1558-5646.2011.01574.x>.

rdflib

cran
99.99th

Percentile

The Resource Description Framework, or 'RDF' is a widely used data representation model that forms the cornerstone of the Semantic Web. 'RDF' represents data as a graph rather than the familiar data table or rectangle of relational databases. The 'rdflib' package provides a friendly and concise user interface for performing common tasks on 'RDF' data, such as reading, writing and converting between the various serializations of 'RDF' data, including 'rdfxml', 'turtle', 'nquads', 'ntriples', and 'json-ld'; creating new 'RDF' graphs, and performing graph queries using 'SPARQL'. This package wraps the low level 'redland' R package which provides direct bindings to the 'redland' C library. Additionally, the package supports the newer and more developer friendly 'JSON-LD' format through the 'jsonld' package. The package interface takes inspiration from the Python 'rdflib' library.

rfigshare

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Percentile

A programmatic interface to the Web Service methods provided by the Mendeley open science project.

sarsop

cran
99.99th

Percentile

A toolkit for Partially Observed Markov Decision Processes (POMDP). Provides bindings to C++ libraries implementing the algorithm SARSOP (Successive Approximations of the Reachable Space under Optimal Policies) and described in Kurniawati et al (2008), <doi:10.15607/RSS.2008.IV.009>. This package also provides a high-level interface for generating, solving and simulating POMDP problems and their solutions.

taxadb

treebase

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Interface to the API for 'TreeBASE' <http://treebase.org> from 'R.' 'TreeBASE' is a repository of user-submitted phylogenetic trees (of species, population, or genes) and the data used to create them.

virtuoso

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Provides users with a simple and convenient mechanism to manage and query a 'Virtuoso' database using the 'DBI' (Data-Base Interface) compatible 'ODBC' (Open Database Connectivity) interface. 'Virtuoso' is a high-performance "universal server," which can act as both a relational database, supporting standard Structured Query Language ('SQL') queries, while also supporting data following the Resource Description Framework ('RDF') model for Linked Data. 'RDF' data can be queried using 'SPARQL' ('SPARQL' Protocol and 'RDF' Query Language) queries, a graph-based query that supports semantic reasoning. This allows users to leverage the performance of local or remote 'Virtuoso' servers using popular 'R' packages such as 'DBI' and 'dplyr', while also providing a high-performance solution for working with large 'RDF' 'triplestores' from 'R.' The package also provides helper routines to install, launch, and manage a 'Virtuoso' server locally on 'Mac', 'Windows' and 'Linux' platforms using the standard interactive installers from the 'R' command-line. By automatically handling these setup steps, the package can make using 'Virtuoso' considerably faster and easier for a most users to deploy in a local environment. Managing the bulk import of triples from common serializations with a single intuitive command is another key feature of this package. Bulk import performance can be tens to hundreds of times faster than the comparable imports using existing 'R' tools, including 'rdflib' and 'redland' packages.

alm

cran
99.99th

Percentile

An R interface to the open source article level metrics platform <https://github.com/articlemetrics/lagotto/> created by the Public Library of Science (PLOS). A number of publishers are using the open source app created by PLOS, so you can drop in a different base URL to the functions in this package to get to not only PLOS data, but data for Crossref, and more as the open source PLOS software is used.

dataone

cran
99.99th

Percentile

Provides read and write access to data and metadata from the DataONE network <https://www.dataone.org> of data repositories. Each DataONE repository implements a consistent repository application programming interface. Users call methods in R to access these remote repository functions, such as methods to query the metadata catalog, get access to metadata for particular data packages, and read the data objects from the data repository. Users can also insert and update data objects on repositories that support these methods.

dataspice

cran
99.99th

Percentile

The goal of 'dataspice' is to make it easier for researchers to create basic, lightweight, and concise metadata files for their datasets. These basic files can then be used to make useful information available during analysis, create a helpful dataset "README" webpage, and produce more complex metadata formats to aid dataset discovery. Metadata fields are based on the 'Schema.org' and 'Ecological Metadata Language' standards.

osfr
