Recently I was learning web scraping using BeautifulSoup library in python.After learning the basics concepts of web scraping, I wanted to use to use it to write some real-world program.
While browsing the internet I came across website startupgoa.org which have a list of startups in Goa, India [FYI I am from GOA].
So I decided to write a python script that will
- Scrap this list of companies in Goa.
- Get location (latitude & Longitude) of these using Geocoder(I used Google geocoder API).
- Plot those points on the map using a python package Folium
After lots of googling & searching for answers on StackOverflow below is the end result.
Please do provide feedback & let me know in comments if I can improve this script.
