Using OpenRefine

OpenRefine (formerly GoogleRefine) is an open-source tool designed for working with messy data. You can use it to clean your data and transform it between formats, a process commonly referred to as data wrangling.

OpenRefine is available in the Data Lab with the PCL Scholars Lab.
