dataset R package aims to help the Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reuse of digital assets, particularly datacubes and datasets used in statistics and data analysis.
More Valuable Datasets
Increase the (re-)use value of a dataset by increasing semantic information about the variables (columns), observations (rows), and the structure of the dataset.
dataset R package creates new classes and an interface to easily add, retrieve or modify descriptive, provenance or structural metadata to a dataset.
This package is in an early development phase. The current dataset S3 class is inherited from the base R data.frame. Later versions may change to the modern tibble, which carries a larger dependency footprint but easier to work with. Easy interoperability with the data.table package remains a top development priority.
