Practical Applications of Alteryx

Web Scraping

Analyzing your data in isolation is one thing, but the ability to connect to external, online sources allows you to tell a much more comprehensive story. In this course, you will explore Alteryx’s web-scraping functionality, using an API to incorporate geo-data into your workflow.

About This Course

Some datasets are too time and labour intensive to build from scratch, there are often ready-made, online solutions available. This course introduces you to the concept of web-scraping before showing you how you can do so in Alteryx.

You’ll begin by cleaning your data using the RegEx tool. You’ll then use the Google Maps Geocoding API to generate longitude-latitude coordinates before finally incorporating the information into your workflow.

By the end of this course, you will be adept at web-scraping in Alteryx. You will be armed with the basic tools for searching for and extracting data from online sources, vastly increasing the potential scope of your data analysis.
