The BioVeL Open Refine service is essentially an extension built over the already existing Open Refine (http://openrefine.org/), which 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.

The BioVeL Extension adds functionality specific to cleaning biodiversity data. The entire package can be installed and run locally as well as on a dedicated server.

Installation instructions are available at https://wiki.biovel.eu/display/doc/Installing+and+running+DR+Workflow+on+Taverna+Workbench#InstallingandrunningDRWorkflowonTavernaWorkbench-InstallingGoogleRefine

The main bottleneck in performance is the uploading of data. For considerably large number of records or even sizeable number of columns, it may be required to increase the memory settings for the service as mentioned here - https://github.com/OpenRefine/OpenRefine/wiki/FAQ%3A-Allocate-More-Memory.
