Google Maps Scraping In Pure Python​

Scraping Google Maps requires good knowledge of coding, browser emulation, proxies, and reCAPTCHA solver. Additionally, you should also be ready to deal with changes that Google might make to its dynamic content.

First of all, you will need to mimic the real user’s behavior by using browser emulation. Using Selenium or other browser emulators might be a good solution.

Secondly, if you want to keep your office/home IP safe you will need to use proxies. So you can request websites from other people’s IPs.

Even with that set of tools, once you have some good usage, Google might show you reCAPTCHA and bind it to some of your IPs. If you do not want to change IPs every time you see a reCAPTCHA, you can add a reCAPTCHA solver.

Additionally, be prepared for situations when Google might change its content. You can do it by running daily tests.

Although it might take some time to implement the scraper, it can be built and maintained. Check out this step-by-step tutorial on how to scrape Google Maps using Python and Selenium to learn more: How to Scrape Google Maps With Python and Selenium.

Google Maps Scraping in Python

Installation

Install the Outscraper SDK by running the following command (Python 3+ is required):

				
					pip install outscraper
				
			

Initialization

Initialize the Outscraper client by importing the class and adding your secret API key. You can generate the API key on 프로필 페이지.

				
					from outscraper import ApiClient

client = ApiClient(api_key='SECRET_API_KEY')
				
			

Usage Examples

Here are examples of how you can scrape places from Google Maps by using search queries:

				
					# Search for businesses in specific locations:
results = client.google_maps_search_v2(['restaurants brooklyn usa'], limit=20, language='en', region='us')

# Scrap Places by Two Queries
results = client.google_maps_search_v2(
    ['restaurants brooklyn usa', 'bars brooklyn usa'],
    limit=50, # limit of palces per each query
    language='en',
    region='US',
)

# Iterate over the results
for query_places in results:
    for place in query_places:
        print('query:', place['query'])
        print('name:', place['name'])
        print('phone:', place['phone'])
        print('website:', place['site'])
				
			

It’s also possible to extract the data by using Place Id:

				
					# Get data of the specific place by id
results = client.google_maps_search_v2(['ChIJrc9T9fpYwokRdvjYRHT8nI4'], language='en')

# Scrap Places by Place Ids
results = client.google_maps_search_v2(
    ["ChIJ8ccnM7dbwokRy-pTMsdgvS4", "ChIJN5X_gWdZwokRck9rk2guJ1M", "ChIJxWLy8DlawokR1jvfXUPSTUE"],
    limit=1, # limit of palces per each query
)

# Iterate over the results
for query_places in results:
    for place in query_places:
        print('name:', place['name'])
        print('place_id:', place['place_id'])
