reading from WQX files?
Created by: philippi
Are there any plans to extend this package to work with WQX, e.g., importWQX, readWQX, whatWQXData, & whatWQXsites? NPS WRD is migrating most (but not all) of our data from STORET to EQuIS. NPS IMD uses restrends, EGRET, etc., for analyses & reporting. We already pull data from WQP (e.g., USGS sites upstream or downstream for comparisons), but (allegedly) need to pull data from the NPS WRD EQuIS instance, too. I don't like the idea of EQuIS-specific coding, as their schema will change over time. I think that the solution is to code against their WQX (export) tables, in a way that would work for other WQX tables or files, too.
