Cleaning & Exploring your data with Open Refine

Do you have messy data from multiple inconsistent sources, or open-responses to questionnaires? Do you want to improve the quality of your data by refining it and using the power of the internet?

Open Refine is the perfect partner to Excel. It is a powerful, free tool for exploring, normalising and cleaning datasets, and extending data by accessing the internet through APIs. In this course we'll work through the various features of Refine, including importing data, faceting, clustering, and calling remote APIs, by working on a fictional but plausible humanities research project.

Data Visualisation with Google Fusion Tables

Have you got data in different forms that you want to compare directly? Do you want to show your data on a map to improve your research message?

This workshop is an introduction to data visualisation techniques using hands-on activities in Google Fusion Tables. The course is ideal for participants who work with large data sets and want to convey their research outcomes clearly and persuasively in a visual manner. By merging geospatial data and crime statistics to create a heat map, participants will gain skills in visualisation that they can apply to their research.


***Preparation

Google Fusion Tables is an experimental Google Drive app. A personal Gmail account is required to participate in this course. Institutional accounts, such as those at universities, will not work.
