Web scraping of rented cottages

Web scraping is a data collection method for programmatically fetching the website's source code and extracting the needed data from it. The data are collected about the capacity, location, prices and other features of rented cottages given on the pages of accommodation agency services and trading sites. 

Data are collected from the most significant accommodation agency services and trading sites for rented cottages. Statistics Finland publishes data on the rental use of cottages by region and month in connection with accommodation statistics.
