Importing data into the R programming environment. I've tried imorting the data set with read.csv() but its telling me it cannot import vector of more than 500mb.

  • seems to be more of a programming question (--> stackoverflow). Also, see this question opendata.stackexchange.com/q/1256/1511 (in general, don't load columns you don't need, and avoid special packages when the data model is simple)
