Course Description

The course ends with a challenge that will help you understand how web scraping works across different websites. Next, you will be guided through a project that will allow you to add your own spin on web-scraped data analytics.

You'll then learn more about scraping and the CSS Selector, to get exactly the data you need (and no other code or content).

This course will teach you how to scrape the internet using R and rvest. The course will teach you the basics of web page structure and some HTML and CSS. For further cleaning and parsing, you'll also be able to import the code from a webpage into your R workflow.

There are many data sets that can be downloaded in convenient formats. However, there is a lot of data that is stored in more difficult-to-access places, such as tables on web pages. Web scraping is required to access this data. The rvest package in R can be used to do this.

This course in the Data Analyst in R Path will allow you to build on your R programming skills as you use data scraped from the internet to create unique analysis projects.
