I am extracting over 50,000 census block / tract numbers from a census website. I am using wget for windows to extract the data from the web. My problem is: I have the answer but I don't know the question. Example: I lookup 53,369 records. I end up with 53, 344 output records, 25 of the lookups resulted in no-record found, which means that I do not get an output record. Therefore I have no idea how to match my results with my searched criteria. If my output could be proceeded by the URL of each input then I would be able to parse the results and extract the initial Lat/Lon and pair it with the resulting FIPS code. Does anyone have a way to make this or something similar happen?
p.s. I think I can work around this issue by also creating a log file and then comparing the
results, but it is not near as clean and easy as my request above.
(followed by 53,000+ records with different lat/lons)
batch file: wget --input-file=census.in --output-document=census.o
