emld: Ecological Metadata as Linked Data
This is a utility for transforming Ecological Metadata Language
('EML') files into 'JSON-LD' and back into 'EML.' Doing so creates a
list-based representation of 'EML' in R, so that 'EML' data can easily
be manipulated using standard 'R' tools. This makes this package an
effective backend for other 'R'-based tools working with 'EML.' By
abstracting away the complexity of 'XML' Schema, developers can
build around native 'R' list objects and not have to worry about satisfying
many of the additional constraints of set by the schema (such as element
ordering, which is handled automatically). Additionally, the 'JSON-LD'
representation enables the use of developer-friendly 'JSON' parsing and
serialization that may facilitate the use of 'EML' in contexts outside of 'R,'
as well as the informatics-friendly serializations such as 'RDF' and
