Welcome to the DataHippo Project Wiki Page

DataHippo

Aim

The aim of this project is to provide a public API to people who are interested in scrapping data from different room letting platforms, such as AirBnb and HomeAway, in order to provide them with a common place where to store their data and to retrieve data from others.

We define someone who does webscrapping as a webscrapper, obviously. Therefore this API provides webscrappers with a place where they can store this data without the need of having to hire a web hosting service.

How does it work?

Whether you are a mercenary webscrapper or you are only seeking for data, you can access this api. However if you want to upload your data, you will need a user and password. Please register here in order to obtain your login credentials.

We will analyze all data for each listing that is sent to us. If we find this data is correct and it is not present in our databases, we will persist this information and it will be available to the rest of our community.

On the other hand we may find that the data sent to us is already in our database. In this case, two things may happen:

1 - The listing data you are sending exactly matches the data we already have in our database. In this case no data change will be performed. 2 - The listing you are sending is already in our database but does not exactly match your data. We will keep the your data and will try to check which one is correct.
