What is Data Scraping?
A website is jam-packed with the information you want. But you don’t always have the time or energy to go through every page and take comprehensive notes. Consider data scraping. You can get all of the information you need with just one tool (without all of the pesky clicking and tapping).
Understanding Data Scraping
Humans were in mind when companies designed their data harvesting technologies. They don’t spew out code, tags, or formatting.
Data scraping is classified into three types:
- Report mining is the process of extracting data from websites and converting it into user-generated reports. It’s similar to printing a page, only that the printer is the user’s report.
- Screen scraping: The tool converts data from legacy machines into modern equivalents.
- Web scraping is the process of extracting data from websites and converting it into reports that users may alter.
