OpenRefine for Beginners
February 10 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST| Free
Looking to organize and rearrange a large spreadsheet for a project? Join us for an interactive, step-by-step introduction to OpenRefine, an open source desktop application described as “a powerful tool for working with messy data.” This session will cover OpenRefine basics including editing and reconciling data, transforming data into different formats, and connecting to external data sources like Wikidata.
Equipment/Software Requirements: A computer (running Windows, Mac, or Linux operating systems) with OpenRefine 3.4.1 and Google Chrome installed. We can try to guide participants through installation at the beginning of the workshop if needed. A sample data set will be provided for exercises and experimentation.
