regions 0.1.8 Unreleased

  • Removing a bottleneck from validate_geo_code() and validate_nuts_regions(). The NUTS exceptions are essentially constants, and it was unnecessary to calculate them each time these functions were running. They were moved to the nuts_exceptions dataset.
  • Citation info was given the the vignette articles.
  • Some error messages in assertions were made clearer are more consistent.

regions 0.1.7 2021-06-16

  • Added the regional_rd_personnel dataset and the Maping Regional Data, Maping Metadata Problems vignette.
  • A new function, validate_parameters() takes over several parameter validations. The aim of this function is to provide consistent error messages, and thorough validation of function parameters whenever they must conform to a closed vocabulary or parameter range.
  • This version is released on CRAN.
  • We started building an experimental APIs data is running regions regularly and improving known statistical data sources. See: Digital Music Observatory, Green Deal Data Observatory, Economy Data Observatory.

regions 0.1.6 Unreleased

  • Exception handling partly moved to assertthat.
  • New test_geo_code of for performance enhancement.
  • Changing non-standard evaluation to dplyr 1.0+
  • Master repo moving to rOpenGov.
  • Rewritten README.

regions 0.1.5 2020-06-23

  • Correction of a small bug with input data frames that already have columns that the validation result should contain.
  • Wordlist added for spell checking with geographical exceptions.

regions 0.1.4 Unreleased

  • Documentation improvements.
  • validate_country_nuts_countries is now follows dplyr 1.0, this makes the code more readable.
  • validate_nuts_regions is validating non-EU NUTS-like regions as valid if they will be added to NUTS2021. These regional codes, while legally not part of the NUTS2016 typology, are valid and can be placed on the maps created by EuroGeographics maps provided by Eurostat.
  • Italy, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Estonia, Slovenia,Latvia pseudo-NUTS3 codes in google_nuts_matchtable.
  • New correspondence table for conversion between Local Administration Units (LAUs) and NUTS within the European Union and some other European countries.

regions 0.1.3 2020-06-04

  • Further improvements in the Google typology: adding the United Kingdom, Portugal, Greece, Malta, parts of Latvia, Italy and Reunion.
  • recode_nuts slightly altered to follow changes in dependency dplyr.

regions 0.1.2 Unreleased

  • New function impute_down_nuts for less general cases, i.e. EU NUTS imputations.
  • Contributor attribution consistent in DESCRIPTION and source file.
  • Release candidate on CRAN.

regions 0.1.0.0001 Unreleased

  • Adding the google_nuts_matchtable by Istvan Zsoldos for joining data from the Google Mobility Reports with Eurostat datasets.

regions 0.0.0.9000 Unreleased

  • Added a NEWS.md file to track changes to the package.
  • Preparing a release candidate with Travis-CI integration.
