By the end of this project, you will create, clean, explore and analyze San Francisco’s building permit public data. We will use OpenStreetMap API to find the geo-coordinates of buildings using R and RStudio and we will analyze the final results in Tableau. You will learn basic data cleaning techniques using R, create a function to make requests to the OpenStreeMaps API and leverage Tableau to generate insights. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We're currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
