Challenge 1: Cost Data Scraping & Visualised Search Tool​​

Recommended Posts

Challenge Overview

Can we scrape project cost estimates from an unstructured data source into a structured form? 

We will be developing a visualised search tool to be able to access this data in a quick and efficient manner.


Challenge Breakdown

Budgeting and estimation in the construction industry is a vital but often a time-consuming endeavour. 

Can we build a testable dashboard to search through this data and gain further insight into the data through visualisation?

This challenge is about making it easier to work with unstructured data to search and find information. The challenge will require you to take a pdf filled with data and tables and pull that all into a completely new structure. You will then have to provide a search feature to allow industry professionals from a non-technical background, the opportunity to search for the things that they need.  In this challenge you will develop your critical skills through collecting data from unstructured sources, developing queries and learning the ins and outs of the Power BI and Azure Cognitive search features.
