The LSVI package bundles a number of functions to support researchers studying the local conservation status of habitats. Several functions give information on the criteria that are used to determine the local conservation status in Flanders, others allow to calculate the conservation status. Criteria are stored in a database, which is indispensable for running functions. (The database is now external for development reasons, but it will be integrated in the package as soon as it is completed).

The package is written in Dutch.


To install LSVI from Github, start a new R session and run this code (before loading any packages).

# install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("inbo/LSVI", build_vignettes = TRUE)

To install the development version with the latest changes included (but less stable), run this code:

remotes::install_github("inbo/LSVI@develop", build_vignettes = TRUE)


After installation, a user manual is available by running this code:

vignette("Handleiding", package = "LSVI")
