[PART 1] Cleaning Data with OpenRefine

October 13, 2022 at 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

Data sets often have problematic content such as formatting inconsistencies and incomplete elements that are beyond the capabilities of spreadsheet programs like Excel to deal with easily. OpenRefine is a powerful tool for working with messy data. It will help you do things like standardize date formatting; split up cells with multiple authors into separate cells; match local data up to other data sets; and enhance a data set with data from other sources.

Part 1 of this workshop will focus on the basic functions of OpenRefine.

Part 2 will focus on advanced features like fetching data from APIs, reconciling data by comparing it to external data sets, and looking at extentions to OpenRefine to perform other tasks.
