Motive of Project
For this project, we'll retrieve the list of diabetologists from the webpage of Credithealth by using Web Scraping.
Web Scraping: It's a technique used to automatically extract large amounts of data from websites and save it to a file or database. The data scraped will usually be in tabular or spreadsheet format(e.g : CSV file)
We'll use the Python Libraries requests and beautifulsoup4 to scrape the info from the web page.
Below are the steps we're going to follow to complete the project:
- Download the webpage using requests library
- Parse the HTML source code using beautifulsoup4
- Extract Doctor name, Hospital Name, Degree, Designation, Discount of Fee
- Compile the extracted information into dictionaries and lists and create a dataframe using pandas
- Create a CSV file
