An R package for reading volleyball scouting files in DataVolley format (
*.dvw), collected for example with the commercial DataVolley, Click and Scout, or VolleyStation software. VolleyStation files in
*.vsm format are also supported.
- the package vignette for more examples and information
- these code snippets for volleyball analytics in R with datavolley and the other openvolley packages
- this DataVolley file validator and suite of analytical apps, which are built on the datavolley package.
Read one of the example data files bundled with the package:
library(datavolley) x <- dv_read(dv_example_file(), insert_technical_timeouts = FALSE) summary(x) #> Match summary: #> Date: 2015-01-25 #> League: Finale mladinke #> Teams: Braslovče (JERONČIČ ZORAN/MIHALINEC DAMIJANA) #> vs #> Nova KBM Branik (HAFNER MATJAŽ) #> Result: 3-0 (25-16, 25-14, 25-22) #> Duration: 67 minutes
If you see unexpected behaviour, try
dv_read(..., do_warn = TRUE, verbose = TRUE) to obtain more diagnostic information during the process of reading and parsing the DataVolley file. If your player or team names are garbled (strange characters) check the text encoding that
dv_read(..., verbose = TRUE) tells you that it is using - you may need to override this with the correct one via the
