Working with Text in R

When? 30 Apr 2018, 15:00 to 17:15
Where? Classroom 511

Much geographic information comes as text. As R is a statistical software, it’s not the right choice for analyzing this kind of data, eh? Of course, it is. In this workshop you will learn how to treat text in R — how to concatenate, extract, substitute text by using regular expression and we will look into what R has to offer for text mining.

Prerequisites? none
