Web data mining made easy

Posted August 29th, 2007 by konrad

Man, and I just complained about Spock which is nothing in comparison to this: If you need an efficient tool for collecting and connection web data about people, organizations etc. then Paterva’s Evolution is the answer for you … but hey, why do you need such a thing?!?. I stumbled across it via a good article on Linux.com. Evolution offers a (closed-source) java-based GUI and two web interfaces (only the classic works at the moment, the web-wizzard cannot be used currently). It is a little bit slow but considering the amount of sources it harvests and the results you get it is pretty okay. I am fascinated and scared on the same time. That just makes it too easy.
