Cleaning & exploring your data with Open Refine – Course Outline

Dates: 17 September 2013

Time: 14:00 - 17:00

Location: Quad 1030 (Lab 6), Australian School of Business
University of New South Wales

Open Refine is a powerful free tool for exploring, normalising and cleaning up 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.
