What is data scraping, and how do I do it?

Scraping extracts the data hidden in documents such as PDFs and web pages and makes it usable for further analysis. Scraping does not have to be complicated, especially if you are using the Google Chrome browser which has add-ons that make data scraping simple. The School of Data has a course that takes you through the ‘5 minute’ process to transform trapped data into a usable format.
