This is a sample from DataMarket's data aggregation project portfolio.
Assignment: To compile recent athletics results from Denmark, Norway and Sweden, secure a license for republishing this data and return in a unified format.
Customer: An upcoming sports portal
Project description: National athletics associations in each country were identified and contacted. Licenses were secured and the available data scoped. The data was then scraped from their websites using custom web crawls, and transformed to fit a single data model. Event names were unified using English as the common language. The data was then returned to the customer in an Excel file.
Scope: 33,000 records with 11 properties each: country, indoors/outdoors, gender, event, result, athlete, club, athlete's date of birth (DoB), location, date (of result) and year (of result).
