Good data is like a good turkey dinner: you need to clean and prepare it before you can enjoy it properly.  What? I have to clean and prepare my data?! This workshop will teach you how use the free open source tool, OpenRefine, to get that messy data in order. You will learn how to:

  • Import data

  • Standardize data

  • Filter, split, replace, and extract data

  • Manipulate textual data

  • Understand the ethics of cleaning data

Please bring a laptop for your own use during the workshop with the latest version of Open Refine installed.
