Abstract

While syntactic transformations require the application of a formula on the input values, such as unit conversion or date format conversions, semantic transformations, such as zip code to city, require a look-up in some reference data. We recently presented DataXFormer, a system that leverages Web tables, Web forms, and expert sourcing to cover a wide range of transformations. In this demonstration, we present the user-interaction with DataXFormer and show scenarios on how it can be used to transform data and explore the effectiveness and efficiency of several approaches for transformation discovery, leveraging about 112 million tables and online sources.
