Description

Cleaning & Exploring your data with Open Refine – Course Outline

Dates: 15 August 2013

Time: 1:30pm - 4:55pm

Location: Intersect Boardroom, Level 12, 309 Kent Street, Sydney

Cost: Free to University Researchers and PhD students

Note: Please bring your own laptop

This three hour workshop introduces Open Refine which is a powerful tool for cleaning, normalisation and exploration of datasets.

In this tutorial we'll work through the various features of Refine, including importing data, faceting, clustering, and calling into remote APIs, by working on a fictional but plausible humanities research project.

We’ll start with a research question in mind and use the features of Refine to gain insights and find answers. The research question relates to NSW police stations — finding out what we can about where they are located, their heritage status, and the kinds of archival records State Records NSW holds on them.
