Spectral Response Data for Light Sensors

Spectral response data for broadband ultraviolet and visible radiation sensors. Different data sources were used: author-supplied data from scientific research papers, sensor-manufacturer supplied data, and published sensor specifications. Part of the 'r4photobiology' suite Aphalo P. J. (2015) .

photobiologySensors is a data-only R package containing spectral responsiveness data for different broadband sensors. It complements other packages in the suite of R packages for photobiology 'r4photobiology'. This package contains only data.

Please, see the web site R4Photobiology for details on other packages available as part of the suite, and on how to install them.


TODO write new User Guide in R markdown. ensure that removed functions have functional equivalents in 'photobiology'. Add additonal spectra for different Solarmeters.

photobiologySensors 0.4.0

Reorganise data storage into a single collection of spectra. Add character vectors of names for use in subsetting the collection. This is a code-breaking update, that will require revision to match the new data structure and naming scheme. First CRAN version.

photobiologySensors 0.3.3

Update for ggplot2 2.0.0, ggspectra 0.1.0, and photobiology 0.9.1. Removed the User Guide as it was not specificc to the data in this pacakge.

photobiologySensors 0.3.2

Rebuild all data and the package with photobiology 0.8.0. Inprove the "thinning" algorithm used with the digitized spectral data.

photobiologySensors 0.3.1

Added data for Delta-T BF5 sunshine sensor. Digitized again data for lux sensor Skye SKL 310.

All data rebuilt with photobiology 0.6.8, and now all spectral data is normalized to one at the wavelength of maximum energy responisvity.

Fixed the "thinning" algorithm of the spectral response data because it was deleting the observations at the longest wavelength values.

photobiologySensors 0.3.0

All data rebuilt with photobiology 0.6.0. "Thinned" some of the spectral response data because it had been digitized with a very small wavelength step size.

Small tweaks to the vignettes.

photobiologySensors 0.2.2

Rebuilt with new version of package photobiology.

photobiologySensors 0.2.1

Added data for sensors made by Skye Instruments. Data digitised from brochures and manuals. Added plots of the newly added spectra to the vignette.

photobiologySensors 0.2.0

Added the spectral data generously supplied as a file by sglux for their sensors. Rebuilt all data objects and data .r files with photobiology 0.5.7 which is now required. Editted the vignettes to use the high level functions currently available in the suite. As a result the code for the example calculations is now much simpler, and consequently, hopefully, also much easier to understand for the user.

photobiologySensors 0.1.8

Rebuilt data object and data .r files and fixed one example in docs. Fixed bugs that rendered data for some sensors inaccessible.

photobiologySensors 0.1.7

Added data for Thies sensor and modified automatic data objects build to use response.spct objects.

photobiologySensors 0.1.6

Fixed a bug that surfaced after trim_tails was modified to allow extrapolation. Cleaned the vignettes.

photobiologySensors 0.1.5

Added more spectra for sglux TOCON sensors. Vignette of spectra updated to include the new data and plotting adjusted a little.

photobiologySensors 0.1.4

Vignette of spectra now shows peaks.

photobiologySensors 0.1.3

Added data for Solar Light and Vital Technologies sensors from WMO-STUK intercomparison. Data kindly made available by Lasse Ylianttila (STUK). First version of User Guide.

photobiologySensors 0.1.2

Calc_sensor_multipliers bug fixed. Sensor data files cleaned. Vignette now builds correctly.

photobiologySensors 0.1.1

Added Solarmeter MODEL 6.0 UV meter.

photobiologySensors 0.1.0

First version. Includes response spectra for sensors for which we have found data online.
