R tools to access and download open data from City of Helsinki and the Helsinki metropolitan area (Finnish capital region).


# Stable release
# Development version

Using the package

As a simple example we load the package, list available features from Helsinki Region Environmental Services HSY WFS API, and then download the 15th feature from that list:

url <- ""

hsy_features <- get_feature_list(base.url = url)

get_feature(base.url = url, typename = hsy_features$Name[15])

For more examples, check the tutorial page.
