tidyhydat - https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=tidyhydat - was accepted on CRAN recently. tidyhydat is a new R package that provides functions in R to access Canadian hydrometric data sources and then tidy that data. We have tried to simplify the process of importing data so that users can focus on modelling and visualizing hydrometric data.
Historical data is contained within HYDAT, the Canadian national Water Data Archive, which is published quarterly by the Government of Canada's Department of Environment and Climate Change. Data in this archive range from 1850 to 2017. tidyhydat also provides functions to access real-time data over the web. This package would be of interest to anyone who has need for Canadian hydrometric data in R.
This package was peer-reviewed by the rOpenSci open review process and is now part of that suite of packages.
