New Orleans tax assessment data is extraordinarily difficult to retrieve from the city website, and the city office charges a fee for bulk extracts due to the burden of extracting that data from their systems.
In order to make this data more accessible, we aim to take on the burden of extracting, assembling and transforming that data through a web scraper tool in order to make bulk data analysis possible.
This project has the following goals:
- Scrape, capture and transform New Orleans tax assessment data from the city website into a form more suited for bulk data analysis.
- Project Champion: Marc Cenac
- Code Lead: Marc Cenac
We’re looking for the following types of help:
- Data analysis
- Visualization design
- Website scraping
- Legal understanding

Assessor data can be retrieved through the search tool available at nolaassessor.com.
The code for this project is on Github in the codefornola/assessor-scraper repo.
