Accountability http://howdtheyvote.ca/ 15. Page Scraping http://www2.parl.gc.ca/housechamberbusiness/ChamberSittings.aspx Screen / page scraping:is a technique in which a computer program extracts data from the display output of another program. The program doing the scraping is called a screen scraper. The key element that distinguishes screen scraping from regular parsing is that the output being scraped was intended for final display to a human user, rather than as input to another program, and is therefore usually neither documented nor structured for convenient parsing.http://www.cramster.com/reference/wiki.aspx?wiki_name=Screen_scraping 16.
