formhub.R

Posted on Feb 7, 2013

formhub.R is a library for making reading data form formhub.org into R easier. What this enables is using R’s analysis and visualization power on formhub data easily. In the simplest example, I show how four lines of R can both download the data and chart submissions on formhub’s “good eats” dataset:

More complex examples include a slightly deeper exploration of survey times by enumerators, and some quick mapping exercises. Let me know by tweeting to @prabhasp and including formhub.R in the tweet what examples you’d like me to demonstrate next!
