Overview

Gathering data from a web page is known as web scraping, and is typically performed either by fetching web page via URL and reading the data directly online, or by reading the data from a saved HTML file. Understanding web scraping is a skill crucial to anyone interested in data science or those just looking to obtain information from web pages.

This course covers:

  • Downloading and installing the Python library BeautifulSoup
  • Inspecting a web page to identify the relevant data
  • Scraping and parsing the data using BeautifulSoup (formatting it into arrays and variables)
  • Storing and sanitizing the data in a correctly formatted CSV sheet
  • Reading from local HTML files instead of URLs
  • How to read non-table data
