Let's say I am collecting information on a topic 'a' from different sources (1, 2, 3).
Each source may give me one or more pieces of data: 1a, 1a', 2a, 2a', 2a'', 3a.
As I examine this data, I realise that some are more relevant than others, while some are completely irrelevant. I produce a final list of: 3a, 2a', 1a, 1a'.
Is there a single verb or expression that describes this process?
