Overview and project goal
Collecting data via web scraping and APIs requires practice. Together with your team members, you plan and execute an online data collection throughout the course by closely following the recommendations in “Fields of Gold”.
At the end of the course, you will submit your collected data, code, and a documentation.
The focus lies on completing an entire data collection project. Keep each stage of your project manageable and feasible. Your project will ultimately be written up as a proper data documentation, following this paper and corresponding template download. Head over to the grading details to find out more!
