Web Data Scraping

See also Web Scraping, Screen Scraping, Web Mining, Data Scraping


Web data scraping refers to the process of collecting data from a domain with the purpose of organizing the data into a parsable format, such as TSV, CSV, or XML. This is differentiated from web crawling, which refers to extracting data from more than one domain, while scraping is generally done within the same domain name.
