There are a few known code bugs in neonUtilities 2.0.0. A patch update resolving these bugs will be delivered in February, and workarounds for avoiding them are described here.
In some cases, zip files downloaded via the NEON Data Portal for observational (OS) data products may fail in
stackByTable(), with a message claiming the data product ID is incorrect. This problem can be avoided by downloading the data using
loadByProduct() instead of the Data Portal.
stackFromStore() may fail when attempting to stack IS and OS data files. Eddy covariance (SAE) files are not affected. There is currently no workaround for this error; see below for instructions for using the in-development next version of neonUtilities.
The sensor_positions data output by
loadByProduct() may not be the most recently published file for data in RELEASE-2021. Check the publicationDate field in the stacked sensor_positions file to determine when the location data were compiled.
To use the development version of neonUtilities 2.0.1, install from GitHub:
devtools::install_github(‘NEONScience/NEON-utilities/neonUtilities’) Keep in mind that the updated package is in active development and may change before publication on CRAN.
Please report any other issues with the package on the repository issues page.
