The RevoScaleR Data Step White Paper

Joseph Rickert, Revolution Analytics

This paper provides an introduction to working with large data sets with Revolution Analytics’ proprietary R package, RevoScaleR. Although the main focus is on the use and capabilities of the rxDataStep function, we take a broad view and describe the capabilities of the functions in the RevoScaleR package that may be useful for reading and manipulating large data sets, cleaning them, and preparing them for statistical analysis with R.
