ogdindiar: R package to easily access Open Government Data from India Portal

June 8, 2015

Following up on my earlier posts on accessing Open Government Data from R, I’ve wrapped this code into an R package – ogdindiar. It’s available on GitHub at https://github.com/steadyfish/ogdindiar

It provides one simple function – fetch_data() to download required data resource from the https://data.gov.in portal. You can find the details about the usage in this vignette.

Below is an example that downloads India’s annual and seasonal mean temperature data using this package. You can also see it here.
