Data Extraction

Scholarcy.com can now read Visual-Meta directly, in addition to the scarping they normally have to do. Founder of Scholarcy.com Phil Gooch writes in an email “Much easier than trying to scrape the data from the PDF.” An example is this document in the ACM Digital Library: https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/3465336.3475093 which renders like this on Scholarcy via Visual-Meta: http://engine.scholarcy.com/flashcard/https://dl.acm.org/doi/pdf/10.1145/3465336.3475093
