Version 0.3.0 of the Climate Futures Toolbox (CFT) R package
The Climate Futures Toolbox (CFT) R package which provides easy and robust access to MACA climate data has reached version 0.3.0: https://github.com/earthlab/cft/releases/tag/v0.3.0 (https://github.com/earthlab/cft/releases/tag/v0.3.0.
Updates in this release should increase the ease of installation and usability of the package:
- All python dependencies have been removed to simplify installation.
- Based on feedback from National Park Service stakeholders, we have generalized the climate data extraction to accept both point and polygon spatial regions of interest.
- The interface to the package has changed to take Spatial* objects, rather than relying on shapefiles stored locally.
