Hello everyone! I have a seemingly basic problem I can't figure out.
I have a csv file and one of the columns contains geometric point data. All the values in the column are formatted like:
POINT (-12.345 67.8910)
POINT (-12.543 67.0198)
I'm using read_csv to import the dataset, and it keeps assigning the column type as character. I eventually want to plot the data using sf, but st_read(), st_point(), & st_as_sf() functions require the col type to be a numeric matrix .
How do I correct the column type or is there something easy I'm missing?
