Computational and Data Systems Initiative
R is mostly known for its statistical methods on numbers. However, it is also capable of working efficiently with text and analysing it. In this workshop we will take a deep dive into how to work with text in R and introduce you to functions that allow you to even do text mining.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to
· manipulate strings efficiently
· import text from multiple sources
· lay the basis for working with regular expressions (regex)
· do some text mining with the tidytext package
Prerequisite: basic understanding of R, e.g. through the CDSI workshop "Introduction to data science with R".
Date: Tuesday May 31st, 2022.
Time: 1 PM to 3 PM.
Location: Burnside Hall room BH511, inside the Geographic Information Center.
Instructor: Dr. Tim Elrick, Director of the Geographic Information Centre.
