DataWrangler for your data formatting needs Formatting data is a necessary pain, so anything that makes formatting easier is always welcome. Data Wrangler, from the Stanford Visualization Group, is the latest in the growing set of tools to get your data the way you need it (so that you can get to the fun part already). It's similar to Google Refine in that they're both browser-based, but my first impression is that Data Wrangler is more lightweight and it feels more responsive. Data Wrangler also seems to do more guesswork, so you can set less specific parameters. The video below describes what all the tool can do, but it's better to just try it out. I'd be interested to hear what the Google Refine users think of Data Wrangler. [Data Wrangler via Waxy]

2 solutions pour se créer un CV infographique en ligne Le CV est très souvent l’étape essentielle pour obtenir un premier entretien d’embauche qui vous permettra de pouvoir prouver votre motivation et vos aptitudes pour un job.
