DVS Workshop: OpenRefine: Data Mining and Transformations, Text Normalization
OpenRefine is a modern data wrangling tool used to resolve common and obscure data cleaning challenges. In this workshop you will explore data without becoming a programmer, easily find patterns and facets, detect and clean inconsistencies, and exert the power of a data engineer without learning C++ or Python. OpenRefine supports both entry-level and advanced problems; is intuitive and powerful; is a tool for normalizing data; and supports reproducible data transformations. Oh, and it's kinda cool, dude.
