Beginner’s guide to extracting data from PDFs

Media Hack, Laura Grant: “Journalists get lots of data in PDF format — they can be tables of data that are embedded in reports or spreadsheets that have been thoughtfully saved as PDFs before they’re emailed to you — but until you can get that data into a spreadsheet, there’s not much you can do with it. Luckily, there are a few great tools that can liberate your data quickly and relatively easily. I’ve listed some of the ones that I’ve used most often here, but there are no doubt loads more out there.”
