Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/Eq.r

Description

This function (eq_location_clean) removes country names at the beginning of the LOCATION_NAME field. It is assumed that country names are followed by a colon when a subsequent city name is provided. Where only the country name is given in the LOCATION_NAME field, the country name is removed since this information is in the country field. The removal of country names is performed using the mutate_ function from the dplyr package (mutate_). The LOCATION_NAME field is converted to title case using the str_to_title function from the stringr package (str_to_title).
