This R package ingests data from the API of opensensemap.org for analysis in R.

Features include:

  • osem_boxes(): fetch sensor station (“box”) metadata, with various filters
  • osem_measurements(): fetch measurements by phenomenon, with various filters such as submitting spatial extent, time range, sensor type, box, exposure..
    • no time frame limitation through request paging!
  • many helper functions to help understand the queried data
  • caching queries for reproducibility

The package aims to be compatible with the tidyverse and sf, so it is easy to analyze or vizualize the data with state of the art packages.


Complete documentation is provided via the R help system: Each function’s documentation can be viewed with ?<function-name>. A comprehensive overview of all functions is given in ?opensensmapr.

There are also vignettes showcasing applications of this package:
