LODRefine is LOD-enabled version of OpenRefine.
OpenRefine is a power tool that allows you to load data, understand it, clean it up, reconcile it to master database, and augment it with data coming from Freebase or other web sources. All with the comfort and privacy of your own computer.
What's the difference between OpenRefine and LODRefine?
LODRefine is actually OpenRefine with integrated extensions that make transition from tabular data to Linked Data a bit easier.
Integrated extensions are:
- RDF extension
- DBpedia extension
- Crowdsourcing extension
- Stats extension
