OpenRefine

Open to UCI affiliates (anyone with a UCINetID) year-round through self registration

OpenRefine is described as “a power tool for working with messy data” David Huynh - but what does this mean? It is probably easiest to describe the kinds of data OpenRefine is good at working with and the sorts of problems it can help you solve.

Instructor: Danielle Kane, please contact libdss@uci.edu if you have any questions.
