Scraping the Surface Web Scraping Tool

Since there is so much information available via the Internet and web sites, the idea of extracting a certain piece, or even a certain type, of information becomes a huge undertaking. The idea behind a scraping tool is that it is a program which will take the instructions as to what type of data are desired, and then scour targeted websites for relevant information. The applications for these types of programs is nearly limitless, from law enforcement and criminal investigation to business and marketing agencies, anyone who needs to find certain information will be able to find it quickly, efficiently, and without spending hours upon hours of precious time finding it the old fashioned way.
