Yes, R was initially designed for number crunching. But hey, geographers and social scientists analyze text as well. And, by now, R isn’t bad working with it either. So, this workshop explores the text functionalities within R, namingly the stringr and tidytext packages. We will even dip into working with regular expressions (regex) and build word clouds.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to

  • apply the stringr functions for manipulating text in R
  • begin to understand the logic of regular expressions
  • apply function of the tidytext package
  • create word clouds

Prerequisite: Knowledge from workshop “Introduction to Data Science with R” or equivalent is helpful

Costs: none
