Data Mashups in R

By Jeremy Leipzig

How do you utilize R to import, deal with, visualize, and examine real-world facts? With this brief, hands-on instructional, you how you can acquire on-line info, therapeutic massage it right into a average shape, and paintings with it utilizing R amenities to engage with internet servers, parse HTML and XML, and extra. instead of use canned pattern info, you are going to plot and learn present domestic foreclosures auctions in Philadelphia.

This useful mashup workout exhibits you the way to entry spatial info in numerous codecs in the community and over the net to provide a map of domestic foreclosure. it really is a very good approach to discover how the R atmosphere works with R applications and plays statistical analysis.

  • Parse messy facts from public foreclosures public sale postings
  • Plot the information utilizing R's PBSmapping package
  • Import US Census info so as to add context to foreclosures data
  • Use R's lattice and latticeExtra programs for information visualization
  • Create multidimensional correlation graphs with the pairs() scatterplot matrix package
