One of the things I wanted my kids to experience when we moved to the UK was to experience the heritage and culture of both the UK and Europe. We’ve certainly done all we can to make that happen.

Which leads us to today’s challenge for DS18…visualizing Unesco World Heritage sites. One of the coolest sites I’ve been to is Stonehenge. Here’s a photo of mine from our visit:

Today’s task: Web scraping Wikipedia and then visualise in PowerBI

All of the information about Unesco world heritage sites can be found on Wikipedia. They will need to scrape the list of countries from this page plus scrape the information about the sites within each country from their respective links.

Once they have all of the data, they will need to create their dashboard in PowerBI. If they want, they can explore the data in Tableau, but their final viz needs to be in PBI.
