Octoparse is a free web scraping software that turns unstructured or semi-structured data from any website into structured datasets, no coding needed. Extracted data can be exported as API, CSV, Excel, HTML, TXT, or into a database. It’s the best free tool for data analysis and mining.
Scraping the web on a large scale simultaneously, based on distributed computing, is the most powerful feature of Octoparse. After you upload your configuration project to the cloud, you can choose to perform the extraction concurrently by using many cloud servers. If you need to scrape 10,000 web pages within a short time, then Octoparse cloud service fits best.
Octoparse simulates human web browsing behavior like opening a web page, logging into an account, entering a text, pointing-and-clicking the web element, etc. Just click the information on the website in the built-in browser and perform the extraction, you will get the structured data you need.
Crawlers run in Octoparse are determined by the extraction rules configured. The extraction rule would tell Octoparse: which website is to be open; where is the data you plan to crawl; what kind of data you want, etc. Octoparse also provides cloud-based scraping service for users to speed up data extraction.
