Racingpost webscraper database builder

Hello freelancer!

I would like a creative a competent freelancer to create a desktop application ( preferably for mac )

I expect this application to

1. Webscrape the racing post website throughout the day and to extract information from a set of horse ratings sent to me as an email in order to gradually build a database entry which can be inspected visually and output as a spreadsheet if needed as its information builds throughout the day.

2. Ensure the database will allow me to examine initial trends, and to restructure the data in order to output the restructured data appropriately as a spreadsheet ready for more complex statistical analysis and data mining by other programs.

The daily spreadsheet/database entry is at its largest 50 by 50 - it will have a maximum of 2500 entries - any formula used in extraction and calculation are merely simple algebra or programming search routines.

Only one website and one email have to be searched - their format is the same daily

The database is not an analysis tool it will serve simply as a means of restructuring the data and performing simple analysis to establish initial trends - again in terms of algebra or simple routines.

Clearly i am looking to give my fingers a rest and to concentrate on statistical analysis and data mining

I have a degree in maths and computing but it was 10 years ago and i am out of the loop now - but i understand enough to be able to give clear guidelines on what should be a quite simple project if you are familiar with the software - i am assuming all of this can be done with open source programs.

Webscraping, data extraction and a simple data base if these are your skills please make a bid and get in touch
