Information About Data Cleaning

What Is Unstructured Data?

Unstructured data is also known as “big” data or “raw”, and it’s data that doesn’t follow a specific format. It is often large in volume and heavy in text. Data lakes are used to store it in its native format. It is hard to store unstructured data and it requires large storage space. Because it’s not stored in a relational database, it’s more difficult for humans and computers to understand. Unstructured data may be available in many formats. Unstructured data can include images, audio, video, and spreadsheets. In real life, you can see the difference between structured and unstructured data by the date and time of an email (structured) as well as the content of the email(unstructured). The first can be understood, stored in databases, and extracted meaning from. The second can also be parsed but it’s more difficult to understand than simply storing it in order. Unstructured data is difficult to analyze if it doesn’t have clear parameters or encoding. It usually takes many rounds of data manipulation and parsing, most commonly using Machine Learning algorithms. It depends on the data and what skills you need. Data cleaning is necessary to eliminate errors and ‘noise’ from data. Natural language processing is required to extract meaning from written text. Computer vision is used for the interpretation of images and videos. Even after all these tasks have been completed, sometimes it takes much more work to make data meaningful. Because unstructured data is usually text-heavy, it can be considered quantitative. Although it may contain numbers these are used to classify the information. Most enterprise data is not structured. This is where the real work begins.

What is Semi-Structured Information?

Semi-structured data, which is growing in popularity, should be considered alongside structured and unstructured data. Semi-structured data does not look like unstructured. They do not work with the tabular format in relational databases. However, it does contain markers that help to distinguish different parts of the data. Because it has an inherent hierarchy, it is semi-structured. Semi-structured data is becoming more popular in the digital age. It can be generated by online applications, object-oriented databases, email clients, or file formats like JSON (designed to be human-readable). It is easier to work with semistructured data than with unstructured. This allows you to save time organizing large amounts of unstructured information and analyzing them. The tagged elements make it easier to create new models. They reduce errors in data translation between formats.

Northwest Database Services has 34+ years experience with all types of data services, including mail presorts, NCOA, and data deduplication.

Often, data requires extensive manipulation to remove corrupt data and restore the database to proper functionality. Call us at (360)841-8168 for a consultation and get the process of data cleaning started as soon as possible.

About Indiana

Indiana Information

Find Out About Indiana

IndianaIndiana is located in the Midwestern United States. It is the 38th largest by area and 17th most populous state in the 50 States. Indianapolis is the capital and largest city of Indiana. On December 11, 1816, Indiana was made the 19th American state. It borders Lake Michigan to its northwest, Michigan to its north and northeast, Ohio and Kentucky to the southeast, and the Wabash River to Illinois to the west.


For thousands of years, Indiana was home to many indigenous peoples. Some of these people were expelled by the U.S. government between 1800-1836. Indiana was named because it was home to many native tribes, even though the state was given statehood. Settlement patterns in Indiana reflect the regional cultural segmentation of the Eastern United States. The state’s northernmost region was settled by immigrants from New England and New York. Central Indiana was settled by people from Central Indiana and the Mid-Atlantic States. Southern Indiana was settled by settlers from Upland South, especially Kentucky and Tennessee.
