TheWebMiner is an experimental web-based scraping tool capable of rapidly capturing any amount of structured data from any web page (for example a Google search result page). Once captured the data can be saved in SQL, CSV, XML, JSON and Excel file formats.TheWebMiner is very easy to use, as you only need to provide the reference URL page, and text samples of the structured data units that you would like to capture.
The service is free until January 5 2013.

Structured data scraping/crawling/extraction is a major step up from the simpler text and image extraction now familiar from generalist content curation tools like Scoop.it. It's about recognizing and extractic specific types of structured data like product names, product prices, taxes, brand names etc.
Structured data extraction used to be the priviledge of a few high tech companies like Google.
It looks like it will soon be everybody's tool !
