An R client for the BAN API

Travis-CI Build Status

The banR package is a light R client for the BAN API. The Base Adresse Nationale (BAN) is an open database of French adresses, produced by OpenStreetMap, La Poste, the IGN and Etalab.

banR is not yet on CRAN (but hopefully, it will be soon), so for the time being it can be installed through devtools:

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("joelgombin/banR", build_vignettes = TRUE)

banR allows to geocode lots of adresses in batch (the only hard limit is that, at the moment, the API only allows CSV files up to 8 MB). Please be gentle with the server though!

banR is designed to be used in a data exploration workflow, with a syntax 'à la tidyverse':

library(dplyr)
#>
#> Attaching package: 'dplyr'
#> The following objects are masked from 'package:stats':
#>
#>     filter, lag
#> The following objects are masked from 'package:base':
#>
#>     intersect, setdiff, setequal, union
