I am looking for someone to do a one-time scraping of a number of different websites and deliver the information in a CSV file.
There will be a number of fields (first name, last name, phone, email, fax, etc) that need to be collected by the scraper which I will specify to the winning bidder.
None of the sites require a username or password to enter.
All the sites will be able to provide you with the required information via a search form.
The basic premise of the project is as follows: I am looking to collect information on specific individuals. Each individual has a number of attributes that I will want to be collected. This individual may have extra information on one site that it doesnt have on another site so i will want you to add/append information to the CSV file as necessary for each individual from the various URLs to make sure I have a complete listing for each record once the scraping is completed.
The number of websites to be scraped will be determined with the winning bidder. I will provide sample URLs during bidding phase.
I look forward to receiving your bids.
