Web scraping is a technique of extracting information from websites using specially coded software programs by simulating human exploration of the Web by either implementing low-level Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), or embedding web browsers, such as the Internet Explorer (IE). Web scraping focuses on extracting data such as product prices, weather data, public records, etc. in a local database or spreadsheet for actionable information.
Our customized website scraping programs begin by identifying and specifying as input, a list of URLs that define the data that is to be extracted. The web scraping program then begins to download this list of URLs and the corresponding HTML text.
The extracted HTML is text is thereafter parsed by the developed application to identify and store the needed information in a data format of your choice. Embedded hyperlinks that are encountered can be either followed or ignored, depending on requirement (Deep-Web Data extraction).
