bdc: Biodiversity Data Cleaning

The bdc package brings together several aspects of biodiversity data-cleaning in one place. It is organized in thematic modules related to different biodiversity dimensions, including 1) Merge datasets: standardization and integration of different datasets; 2) Pre-filter: flagging and removal of invalid or non-interpretable information, followed by data amendments; 3) Taxonomy: cleaning, parsing, and harmonization of scientific names from several taxonomic groups against taxonomic databases locally stored through the application of exact and partial matching algorithms; 4) Space: flagging of erroneous, suspect, and low-precision geographic coordinates; and 5) Time: flagging and, whenever possible, correction of inconsistent collection date. In addition, the package contains features to visualize, document, and report data quality – which is essential for making data quality assessment transparent and reproducible.
