## 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.
