I am pleased to announce that the xtractomatic package is now available from
xtractomatic is an R package developed to subset and extract satellite and
other oceanographic related data from a remote server. The program can extract
data for a moving point in time along a user-supplied set of longitude,
latitude and time points; in a 3D bounding box; or within a polygon (through
time). The xtractomatic functions were originally developed for the marine
biology tagging community, to match up environmental data available from
satellites (sea-surface temperature, sea-surface chlorophyll, sea-surface
height, sea-surface salinity, vector winds) to track data from various tagged
animals or shiptracks (xtracto). The package has since been extended to include
the routines that extract data a 3D bounding box (xtracto_3D) or within a
polygon (xtractogon). The xtractomatic package accesses data that are served
through the ERDDAP server at the NOAA/SWFSC Environmental Research Division in
Santa Cruz, California. The ERDDAP server can also be directly accessed at !
http://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap. ERDDAP is a simple to use yet powerful
web data service developed by Bob Simons.
