Get date-time in a different time zone
with_tz returns a date-time as it would appear in a different time zone.
The actual moment of time measured does not change, just the time zone it is
measured in. with_tz defaults to the Universal Coordinated time zone (UTC)
when an unrecognized time zone is inputted. See
for more information on how R recognizes time zones.
with_tz(time, tzone = "")
- a POSIXct, POSIXlt, Date, chron date-time object or a data.frame
object. When a data.frame all POSIXt elements of a data.frame are processed
with_tzand new data.frame is returned.
- a character string containing the time zone to convert to. R must recognize the name contained in the string as a time zone on your system.

x <- as.POSIXct("2009-08-07 00:00:01", tz = "America/New_York") with_tz(x, "GMT") # "2009-08-07 04:00:01 GMT"
