campfin package

Description

The campfin package was written to facilitate the work done on The Accountability Project (TAP) by the data journalists at The Investigative Reporting Workshop in Washington, DC.

Details

TAP is an effort to centralize many public databases into a searchable website. To improve the searchability of the database, the campfin package is used to normalize values in a common format. The normalization vignette provides examples on how this process improved a database.

The other functions in this package are written to facilitate the exploration of a database. The Investigative Reporting Workshop writes public data diaries to document the data wrangling process; the open source campfin functions help download, import, explore, and wrangle public database.
