Scraping, also known as Web Scraping, Screen Scraping, Web Data Extraction, or Web Harvesting, is a process used to gather substantial volumes of data from various websites. This technique involves the automated extraction of data, which is then systematically organized and stored in a local file on a computer or in a database, often in a table or spreadsheet format. Scraping is typically executed through the use of specialized software that navigates the web, identifies and retrieves the desired information, and then saves this information for further use or analysis.
