The aim of this two hours seminar is to provide a guide to extract "irregularly" formatted tables from PDFs.
We’ll use ROpenSci’s pdftools package along with several tidyverse packages: stringr (text manipulation), dplyr (data wrangling) and tidyr (data cleaning). Two examples of scraping different tables out of PDF documents will be discussed.
