OpenRefine - a open source tool for working with data and contributing to Open Data platformsCheck Reference
OpenRefine, a free and open source Java based data wrangling tool, that has gained significant traction for its ability to work on messy data; clean, transform, and standardize data. Large datasets can be cleaned and transformed into other applications with just a few clicks using OpenRefine and thus significantly reducing the time needed for data preparation and cleaning.
OpenRefine is a game-changer for Wikimedia projects, that can be used to clean tabular data and connect it with knowledge bases. OpenRefine's built-in reconciliation capabilities make it a versatile tool to reconcile tabular data to a wide range of databases, including Wikidata.
In this talk I will demonstrate my experience with using the OpenRefine and it's capabilities for data enhancement and for contributing to different projects like Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, OpenDataKerala initiatives.
Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of how OpenRefine can be used for various purposes.
