fmi2 is not yet on CRAN, but you can install the development version from GitHub with:
# install.packages("remotes") remotes::install_github("rOpenGov/fmi2")
Currently, the following FMI stored queries are avaible in
|Stored query||Description||No. parameters||fmi2 function name|
|fmi::ef::stations||Environmental Monitoring Stations||4||fmi_stations|
|fmi::observations::weather::daily::simple||Daily Weather Observations||11||obs_weather_daily|
|fmi::observations::weather::hourly::simple||Hourly Weather Observations||12||obs_weather_hourly|
More data sets and queries may be wrapped in the future.

If this is
fmi2, where’s the first
fmi!? Good question,

fmi2 and too laborious to maintain.
