Gridworks for data cleaning?

I've noticed a fair buzz recently from open government data people about Gridworks, and specifically this blog post from Jeni Tennison:
I'm reminded of some problems faced publishing the FlyWeb data (, and also of some discussions with Alistair Miles about tooling for cleaning up Malariagen data (

Unsurprisingly, similar problems appear to be faced in publishing government data as open linked data, and the solution that is finding favour there is Gridworks. If it works for them, then I figure it should also work for some of the research data data we are trying to deal with.  I'm thinking this is something we should look to explore in later phases of the ADMIRAL project, under the broad heading of building more formal structures around raw data (WP6).
