Professional data scraper for Google Maps. The application extracts maximum useful information from the maps themselves, and from the websites of organizations. Scraping is done directly from the Google Maps site. You do not need to connect to the Google API. Our scraper also has an unlimited amount of data for extraction. Just download the program, enter geolocation and a keyword to search. Then click “Start.” App will do the rest by itself.
Application extracts phone, address, hours of work, organization description, website address, and other information. From each organization’s website (if listed), our scraper pulls e-mail, facebook, twitter, youtube, yelp, tripadvisor, and other social media addresses. App also scrapes texts of reviews, and photos of the organization. All photos are saved as .jpg files to your hard drive.
The application is based on Google Chrome – it is built inside the application. One window scrolls down the list of organizations. Other windows extract information about organizations in parallel mode. You can specify a city, a region, or an entire country as your GEO location. In general, the app mimics user behavior and works as if a person were searching for some information on maps. Thus, our data scraper for Google Maps is a rather simple and flexible solution, which allows you to extract the data of organizations in a few clicks.
You can use our application for lead generation and similar tasks. We have the ability to filter organizations by rating (e.g., scrape from maps only those organizations whose rating is greater than 3 and less than 4.5). You can also filter by the presence or absence of reviews. If we are talking about reviews themselves, they can also be filtered by length. Generally speaking, you will have a number of settings that you can use to efficiently extract data about organizations from Google Maps.
What data does the program collect from the Google Maps website?
Our application extracts almost all data from Google Maps organization card. Also, the application extracts organization pictures in high-quality and saves them in .jpg format.
Additional data. If an organization card on Google Maps has a website address, the app will retrieve additional contacts from that site. Here’s how it works. The app will follow the link to the site. Then, if it finds a link to the “contacts” section on the home page, it will click on that link (there should be a contacts substring). After that, the app will retrieve e-mail addresses, social media links, and other contact information.
