Summary

During the course of this chapter, we have learned how to master the basics of OpenRefine in order to analyze and fix datasets, essential components of data profiling and cleaning.

Analyzing data involved sorting and the use of various facets, but also the application of text filters and the detection of duplicates.

Fixing data was accomplished through reordering, cell transformations, and deletion.

In the next chapter, we will bring our understanding of the inner workings of OpenRefine to another level by venturing into advanced data operations.
