NGO & Government

Keep ahead of social trends, train prediction models, or stay compliant with regulations and laws.

Web scraping for non-profit organizations and government institutions. Doing good with data from the web.

High-quality web data opens new possibilities for research. Extract it to uncover new trends, train prediction models, or to stay compliant with the latest regulations and changes.

How fast is the world moving around us?

The volume of data on the web continues to double every three years. Web scraping enables you to extract it and organize it the way you need for your work.

The World Resources Institute asked Omdena to help identify economic and financial incentives for forest and landscape restoration in Latin America. One of the tasks was to get 1000s of PDFs from over 100 government websites. The Omdena team solved the problem by using Apify to scrape Google Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) and was able to download the entire 740,000 files in less than 14 hours.

Providing actionable data to forward-thinking NGOs and government institutions

How web scraping and web automation are redefining the work of NGOs and governments

Machine learning

Generate large-scale datasets from the web with defined variables for training your prediction and AI models. Use the vast amount of publicly available data on the web to make the world a better place.

Document processing

Process and analyze large amounts of “natural language data” such as new policies, regulations, images, or location data and PDFs. Collect this data based on predefined triggers in your preferred format and use it for ground-breaking research or to ensure compliance with the latest regulations.

Market research

Collect data from global news sources, social media, and websites of your choice to track public sentiment, identify relationships, spot fake news, and gather up-to-date intelligence.

Web automation

Automate your web workflows and any other tasks you usually do on the web manually. Let robots do the repetitive work of filling out online forms or copy-pasting data. Connect data you extract from the web to your existing tools via ready-made integrations or API.
