Alec developed a
targets workflow for preparing animal relocation data.
The goal is for everyone to 1) start with the same raw data, 2) use the
prepare-locs workflow to generate consistent prepared data and 3)
take these data to their own projects. With everyone starting from the same
raw data and using the same preparation workflow, we hope we can reduce some
redundant preparation logic in projects using the same data and facilitate
collaboration. Note, the
prepare-locs workflow does not necessarily
apply every form of preparation, it aims to be general use allowing users
do their own, more specific preparation afterwards.
prepare-locs uses the
metadata() function to return a
listing file paths, column names, etc. The workflow only prepares datasets
currently available on your local computer - so just make sure the data
you would like to process is present in the specified path.
Note: the expectation is that the user will use the
prepare-locs. If the data you are interested in is not listed
contact Alec to document it. If the data is listed, feel free to contribute
changes or clarifications to the metadata.

metadata project here.
