OpenRefine: a Power Tool for Messy Data

Before analysis comes the messy work of evaluating, cleaning, and transforming data. This hands on workshop will introduce a free power tool to get the job done: OpenRefine.

We will install Refine, create a project, and get oriented to the many features for exploring and transforming tabular data. This session will introduce fetching URLs (to harvest data from the web) and GREL expressions to transform text. If you have taken our Refine workshops in the past, these will be totally new examples and you are welcome to join us again.

Intended for students, faculty, and staff with an interest in cleaning, transforming, and working with diverse data sources. No experience necessary.

Meets in the Library's First Floor Classroom, 120.
