Project Description

Hi,

I am looking to hire an R-based websraping expert in order to write code for me, in R, that will scrape the following webapage into dataframes:

[url removed, login to view]

I am looking for two output from the webscrape:

1. Functionality that scrapes the contents of all available 'Racecards' into a dataframe (eg. [url removed, login to view]) with the following column names: racedate, raceno, racetime, racetrack, racename, tracktype, prize, prize1-5, class, distance, silk, cloth, horse, acs, sh, cfr, trainer, jockey, wgt, mr, dr, odds.

2. Functionality that scrapes all available 'results' into a dataframe ([url removed, login to view]://[url removed, login to view]) with the following column names: racedate, raceno, racetime, racetrack, racename, tracktype, prize, prize1-5, class, distance, cloth, horse, ACS, SH, Trainer, Jockey, Wgt, MR, Dr, OB, SP, FP, Len

I would like the work to be carried out in R (R-Studio) so that i can edit the code myself and export dataframes to SQL once completed. Ideally, I would envisage this using either RCurl or Rvest packages.
