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. OpenRefine is a free, open source, Java application, that runs offline in a web browser. We will install the latest version of OpenRefine, create a project, and get oriented to the many features for exploring and transforming tabular data.
