Scraping data behind maps

Kogan Sep 14, 2016 08:01AM PDT

Hi,

I am hoping to create a list of all locations of a retailer (let's say grocery chain Kroger) for a data analysis project for school. The Kroger website, like many retailers' websites, has a store locator that shows a map of stores based on a zip code that I enter. When I drag the map to find new stores, it will still show some of the stores from the previous region that the map showed.

Either through web scraping, some sort of algorithm, or looking into the HTML code of the webpage, is there a way to access the full list of unique store locations?

Thanks!

Hi Kogan,

If the map has 500 addresses or fewer and the customer has their data listed below(this is an option every map owner controls), then you can copy the data from below the map. Maps over 5000 address do not provide data below the map. But if it isn’t below the map, then you would need to open up each marker bubble.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you,
Tracy
