BioVeL is a virtual e-laboratory that supports research on biodiversity issues using large amounts of data from cross-disciplinary sources. BioVeL offers the possibility to use computerised "workflows" (series of data analysis steps) to process data, be that from one's own research and/or from existing sources. BioVeL is funded through the European Community 7th Framework Programme and is free and available to use via the Internet.
OpenRefine: it is a powerful tool for working with messy data, cleaning it, transforming it from one format into another, extending it with web services, and linking it to databases. Open Refine was initially developed and maintained by Google. The service has been extended to add functionality specific to biodiversity data.
Deploy OpenRefine on the EGI Federated Cloud.
