Use Map barriers as location limiter?

Open

Is it possible to create a custom area search in zillow and to use that location for the scrape? I've tried using the URL from zillow with a custom search or just limited size, but it seems to not recognize the map borders and include areas other than what's visible in Zillow. Any chance this can be achieved? Thank you!

Hello @NoUturns, Please try again with the new updated version. I'm trying to improve this function. try drawing different shapes on the map. Your report will be very useful if any problems are found, thank you

Hi Cat,

SO the map drawing works sometimes, and others it returns an error:bad request

Sorry for long log copy paste, I’m sure you can see it on your end now that I think about it…

That drawing I did was across state lines, would that cause an issue?

Not the state lines issue. I just ran another across state lines and no issue
