R build status



RWDataPlyr is a tool to read and manipulate data generated from RiverWareTM simulations in rdf, csv, and nc formats and work with those data in a dplyr pipeline. It provides functions to gather, aggregate, and summarize data from multiple RiverWare simulations, i.e., scenarios.


RWDataPlyr can be installed from CRAN:

{r, eval = FALSE} install.packages("RWDataPlyr")

Or the development version can be installed from GitHub:

{r, eval=FALSE} # install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("BoulderCodeHub/RWDataPlyr")


RWDataPlyr provides at least three workflows for reading and using RiverWare data:

  1. Reading and manipulating a single scenario
  2. Summarizing multiple slots of data from a single scenario
  3. Aggregating and summarizing many scenarios

Check out the workflow vignette for more details:

{r, eval = FALSE} vignette("rwdataplyr-workflow", package = "RWDataPlyr")
