Data Journalism. Getting the Best Out of the Web with Scraping

Workshop with Michael Bauer

The Data Journalism work sessions aim to be practical meetings with two objectives: to learn about and delve deeper into working with data through workshops, and to present and showcase local projects.

In this session we worked on basic concepts of web scraping based on a small number of simple tools. Scraping refers to the extraction of information or data from a website or a PDF to work with them on a spreadsheet or so that they can be used on different visualisation platforms.

Participants: Michael Bauer
