Problem 43660. Use R2016b Text Manipulations to Fix These Addresses (Part 1)

Created by Dave Bergstein in Community

We have a series of addresses like the following which we'd like to reformat. Can you remove the latitude and longitude from the addresses?

Example:

Input:
adrIn = '959 Blue Hill Ave.Dorchester, MA 2124(42.29189440573543, -71.0887162019496)';
Output:
adrOut = '950 Blue Hill Ave.Dorchester, MA 2124';

Feature Tip:

R2016b introduces string arrays and text manipulation functions which can help. To learn more see MATLAB Characters and Strings.

Background:

Did you know the city of Boston has a number of urban orchards? This data comes form a list of these orchards. We're trying to reformat the addresses into a standard form. You can see the data here or import it into MATLAB with webread.

data = webread('https://data.cityofboston.gov/api/views/byxy-288e/rows.csv');
