For this lesson you will need OpenRefine and a web browser.
Note: OpenRefine is a Java program that runs on your machine (not in the cloud). It runs inside your browser, but no web connection is needed.
Download OpenRefine version 3.5.2 from http://openrefine.org/download.html.
- Do not select beta versions or the release candidates.
- If you are on Windows and do not have Java installed, download the version
Windows kit with embedded Java.
- Unzip the downloaded file into a directory and name that directory something like OpenRefine.
- Check below for further instructions depending on your operating system.
OpenRefine requires one of these web browsers:
- Google Chrome
- Microsoft Edge
openrefine.exe(this will launch a command prompt window first; ignore that, and wait for OpenRefine to launch in the web browser, which is where you will interact with the program).
