A helper utility to determine the raw data format.
identify_track_format(filename = NULL)
A raw data file containing path coordinates. If this is NULL or missing, then a message is given listing all of the possible format codes.
If the track format cannot be determined,
NA is returned.
When run without a
filename parameter, a character vector containing all
supported format codes is invisibly returned.
Raw data from several sources can be read in directly. A number of formats are supported, but it might not be clear which format code corresponds to your data. This function can be run on a typical file to try to guess your file format. If the format is not recognised, please visit the help page at https://rupertoverall.net/Rtrack/help.html where it is also possible to request support for new formats.
