TSdbi: Time Series Database Interface
Provides a common interface to time series databases. The
objective is to define a standard interface so users can retrieve time
series data from various sources with a simple, common, set of
commands, and so programs can be written to be portable with respect
to the data source. The SQL implementations also provide a database
table design, so users needing to set up a time series database
have a reasonably complete way to do this easily. The interface
provides for a variety of options with respect to the representation
of time series in R. The interface, and the SQL implementations, also
handle vintages of time series data (sometime called editions or
realtime data). There is also a (not yet well tested) mechanism to
handle multilingual data documentation.
Comprehensive examples of all the TS* packages is provided in the
vignette Guide.pdf with the TSdata package.
