The type of scraping required would be
- query a page of listings
- get listing title, address etc
- perform geocoding to get long/lat
- visiting listing details page to grab description etc
We will supply the list of sites that need to be scraped and the criteria required. Flexibility and a modular approach is required so that new sites can be added easily enough, use of PHP simple DOM parser or similar preffered to allow easy changes if the target source sites change.
