Metadata Transformation

Background: As part of a graduate-level course, I worked with a partner to capture and transform metadata associated with missing or found pets in the Austin area. Together, we used open government data to create DogMA, a tool to visualize the interaction of local animal services organizations with the community.

My role: I created the schema for the means by which the five datasets used to create DogMA would talk to one another based on a data dictionary that my partner and I developed together. I also used OpenRefine to clean, sort, and standardize all of the data we used to create the tool.
