Web Scraping and GPS Data in Max

April 3, 2011 | 11:12 pm

Hi everyone,

I’m currently aiming to scrape GPS data from 3rd party websites such as this http://www.n2yo.com/?s=25544 in to max.

Are there many ways of getting data streams from the web in to max/msp?

If there are, does anyone know the source 3rd party sites such as this gather their data from?

Kind regards,

M

Look at StockWatch.maxhelp in the examples folder. Does this site provide a feed someplace?

You can download the HTML with [jit.uldl] and look for the relevant information with [jit.str.regexp] although you will have to poll the page to get the updates.
