Value

In n2khab projects a standardized folder setup is used for binary data, as explained in the vignette on data storage (run vignette("v020_datastorage")). The functions creates the folders n2khab_data, n2khab_data/10_raw and n2khab_data/20_processed, or prints a message if these already exist. The function returns the path to n2khab_data.
