OpenRefine (formerly Google Refine) is a powerful tool for working with messy data: cleaning it; transforming it from one format into another; and extending it with web services and external data. OpenRefine can be used to scrape data from websites or convert data between formats. It also makes it easy to save the processing steps to a file that can be loaded back into the tool at a later time, making it easy to repeat the process again on a different set of data.
