  • Automated flagging of common spatial and temporal errors in biological and paleontological collection data, for the use in conservation, ecology and paleontology. The package includes automated tests to easily flag (and exclude) records assigned to country or province centroid, the open ocean, the headquarters of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, urban areas or the location of biodiversity institutions (museums, zoos, botanical gardens, universities). Furthermore, it identifies per species outlier coordinates, zero coordinates, identical latitude/longitude and invalid coordinates. Also, it implements an algorithm to identify datasets with a significant proportion of rounded coordinates. It is especially suited for large datasets.
