Extracting Public Records from Government Websites
Public sector websites house a wealth of information that many of our clients find indispensable. While this information is openly accessible, manually extracting it can be a daunting task. Our solution? We expertly scrape this data and transform it into Excel sheets or any preferred format. Here’s how we can empower you:
- hourly/daily/weekly delivery of Excel files to your mailbox containing updates of information on data sources you specify (for example, latest lawsuits from a specific county, or lawsuits matching certain search criteria)
- individual columns in those files will list key information, for example, names, addresses, or whatever other information you specify
- we’d extract this data from a publicly available records.
- we can extract the textual data from any PDFs or images
Below is a description of a project we’ve done. Please submit the Contact Us form (top menu) to specify your requirements.
Client wanted interactive and recurring extraction of lawsuits in a particular US city. This would replace hours of manual labor on getting each individual lawsuit page and copying the information to Excel.
Client is a legal office looking for clients. The database of recent lawsuits contains the potential clients’ info.
We have created a web form where client can enter the search parameters of the lawsuits he’s interested in. Our scraper would then check every minute if a new request had been submitted.
If so, it would submit the search parameters into the remote website, go page by page and retrieve all individual lawsuit pages. It would then get the specified data fields from every single page and form the Excel file. Upon the completion of the extraction, the client gets the e-mail with the extracted data.
