Data Transformation with OpenRefine

Workshop Description

Data Transformation with OpenRefine

October 16, 2020, 12:00-1:00pm

Instructor: Adriana Cásarez

Description: Interested in using a dataset in your next big untitled research project? Would you currently describe your data as “chaotic”, “messy”, or “sheer mayhem”?  Cringe no longer and come learn about OpenRefine, a powerful (and free!) tool for data cleaning and transformation. Through hands-on activities, we will go through the basics of OpenRefine, such as identifying inconsistencies and patterns, tracking changes and transforming data en masse with both simple clicks and unique expressions.  Additionally, this workshop will teach the importance of data preparation, show you where to find datasets by discipline and provide a library of resources for your OpenRefine journey.
