Package contents

  • get_all_crude (and get_range_crude) for retrieving the full dataset (or a subset) of records from Bath: Hacked datastore
  • refine for processing the raw records
  • refuel and refuel_crude for updating existing data frames with recent records
  • get_rugby, get_events (and get_events_detail) and get_daily_weather for obtaining information through web-scraping.

The full BANEScarparking package contains all of these functions, along with parking, events, rugby and weather data up to the end of 2017 (stored as R datasets).
