I have GPS-telemetry data from animal movement monitoring that records, besides Longitude-Latitude coordinates and date/time, other information (GPS HDOP, elevation and other important stuff).
I can read them in R (using
sf::st_read functions, for example), but they do not recognize this additional information as separate columns. This additional data is read into a column called
description that contains all additional information together, in a format that seems like XML. In each row, I have something like (in an example including only HDOP and elevation):
<tr><td>-21.54328, -49.85085, hdop: 1.0, elev: 898.78</td></tr>
The question is: is there an implemented way of reading kml/kmz files with this additional information already organized as separate columns? And, if not, what would be the easiest solution?
