Working with the Clinton State Dept Email Dumps in R (Part 1: Graphs)

I put this together after experimenting with ggplot2 and ggnetwork earlier this week. The changes I made added svgPanZoom into the mix. Consequently, it has a widget in it, so it was just easier to embed the full R markdown HTML into an iframe than to try to extract the content piecemeal into WP.

You can bust the iframe via http://rud.is/projects/clinton_emails_01.html.

Read on to see how to grab some JSON, create edge list, do some basic graph stats with igraph and generate an interactive visualization with ggplot2 and svgPanZoom.

    I believe the orphaned mini-graphs are indeed cases where Hillary is CC’d. See document C05791081 as an example.

      Aye. I’m leaning towards CC or BCC for them now. I have the PDFs and converted them to (cleaned) ASCII. Next post will be working with those and prbly a bit more graphs.
