I have a pdf with text only. The data is in table format. One column contains coordinates with degree, minute and second symbols. The problem I am facing, is on extracting the data, those symbols are converted to noise. How, can I preserve these symbols in the data frame.
library(tabulizer) a = list(c(121.8,14.4,251.3,403.2)) b = tabulizer::extract_tables(file = "http://www.aip.net.nz/pdf/supplements/aip_supp_7nov19.pdf",pages = 8,area = a) c = do.call(rbind,b)
39Â°41â€™18â€S 174Â°42â€™12â€E should look like 39°41’18”S 174°42’12”E.
How, can I do this?
Thank you, for your time and effort.
