Life is messy. So is your data — especially if multiple people have contributed to the content. Inconsistent data leads to inaccurate analyses, and software programs are often particular about the precise format of your data.
 
If you need a quick way to assess and clean your data without having to write customized scripts to perform all those task, look no further!

Join us for a hands-on workshop on OpenRefine to learn about many of this tool's great features, including:
  • sorting,
  • faceting,
  • cell transformations,
  • handling multi-valued cells,
  • clustering, and
  • splitting data into multiple cells. 

You may bring your own laptop with OpenRefine (http://openrefine.org/download.html) already installed, or use one of our laptops.
