Our next Community Call, on March 27th, aims to help people learn about using rOpenSci’s R packages to access and analyze taxonomy and biodiversity data, and to recognize the breadth and depth of their applications. We also aim to learn from the discussion how we might improve these tools. Presentations will start with an introduction to the topic and details on some specific packages and we’ll hear from several people about their “use cases in the wild”.

We’ve tried to make it easy for you to tell us about how you have used our packages. Go to the UseCases category in our public forum. Starting a “New Topic” opens a template that suggests what to provide, like the name of the rOpenSci tool or resource you used, a link to a post or code snippet, and a few other optional things. We might share your use case during the Call or tweet about it, so be sure to give your twitter handle.
