Extracting data and scraping are two different techniques in computer programming. Extracting data is the process of retrieving a part or all of a given set of data from one entity and placing it into another entity. Scraping is the process of copying content from one web site and placing it into another web site automatically without the consent or knowledge of the original site.
Extracting data: If you have a website for some company and want to extract data about that company, your first step would be to find out how to extract that information. You would then be able to save that information using various formats such as HTML, JSON, XML, CSV, etc. Scraping: The next step would be to find an automated way in which you can collect all the necessary data without having to manually go.
