Diggernaut – Data Scraping – Turn Website Content Into Datasets
Diggernaut is a cloud based service for web scraping, data extraction and other ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) tasks. If you are a reseller of goods and your supplier does not let you have their data in a suitable format, such as excel or csv, you will have to manually retrieve data from their website. All you need to do is to create a digger, a tiny robot that can do web scraping on your behalf and extract data from websites for you, normalize it and save data to the cloud. Once it’s done, you can download it in CSV, XLS, JSON format or even retrieve it using their Rest API. What type of data can Diggernaut extract for you? a) Product prices and other related information, reviews and ratings from retailer sites; b) Different types of events happening in different locations of the world; c) News and headlines from different news agencies websites; d) Statistical data from different sources; e) Different government data and reports (police, sheriff, fire depts.). Even obtain court related documents; f) Licenses and permits issued from municipal and governmental structures; g) People opinions and comments on forums or social media platform; h) Real estate property information that may contain recorder, assessor, or tax information; and i) Mostly anything on the web.
