HURDAT is a R library that scrapes the most recent HURDAT dataset from the National Hurricane Center. Datasets cover the Atlantic and northwestern Pacific ocean. This dataset is a best-track post-storm analysis as determined by the Hurricane Research Division.
Dataset may contain errors; particularly with latitude and longitude. This is in the original dataset; not an issue with the scraping function. However, if you notice any errors, please send post them to the GitHub repo: https://github.com/timtrice/HURDAT/issues.
Access Atlantic basin data with the call
data("AL"); Pacific data with `data(“EP”).
