  2. ETN - European Tracking Network

  3. ETN application

  4. ETN R package

  5. - Started in 2018 - Provide access to ETN data

    - Tidyverse style - 4 types of functions: - connect_to_etn(): make database connection - get_ functions: get data in tabular format - list_ functions: list unique values as vector - download_dataset functions: export data for publication ETN R package
  6. - Mimic tables in ETN application: - Data as tibble

    data frame - Standardized column names - Function parameters as filters: get_animals( animal_project_code = "2014_demer" scientific_name = c("Rutilus rutilus", "Silurus glanis") ) get_ functions
  7. - Export all data for a project - animals -

    tags - detections - deployments - receivers - Structure expressed as a Frictionless Data Package - Good format for publishing source data, e.g. https://doi.org/10.14284/432 download_dataset function
  8. - Allow use beyond https://rstudio.lifewatch.be - Expand scope to underwater

    acoustics, PIT, etc. - rOpenSci, CRAN Development roadmap
  9. Thank you Development team: Peter Desmet, Damiano Oldoni & Stijn
