As of August 11, 2015,
ODF::read_ODF returns a list with 9 elements,
DATA, which is a
data.frame() containing the
columnar data, the others being headers of various sorts. The present
function constructs an oce object from such data, facilitating processing
and plotting with the general oce functions.
This involves storing the 8 headers verbatim in the
odfHeaders in the
metadata slot, and also
copying some of the header
information into more standard names (e.g.
metadata@longitude is a
metadata@odfHeader$EVENT_HEADER$INITIAL_LATITUDE). As for
DATA, they are stored in the
data slot, after renaming
from ODF to oce convention using
ODF2oce(ODF, coerce = TRUE, debug = getOption("oceDebug"))
A list as returned by
A logical value indicating whether to coerce the return value to an appropriate object type, if possible.
a flag that turns on debugging. Set to 1 to get a moderate amount of debugging information, or to 2 to get more.
An oce object, possibly coerced to a subtype.
This function may change as the
