ALA4R is the first version of an R programming language package, which enables the R community to directly access data and resources hosted by the Biodiversity Atlas Sweden and other Living Atlases around the world. The package enable outputs of e.g. species observations, to be queried and output in a range of standard formats so that extensive analyses can be done in R.
The ALA4R package is available in our web-based platform for reproducible research, Mirroreum, where it is preconfigured to retrieve data from the BioAtlas. To be able to retrieve data from the BioAtlas on a local installation of R some configurations are needed.
To learn more about how to install and use the ALA4R package locally use the educational resources listed below or request an account to Mirroreum.
