We provide an overview on the development and the integration in ENEAGRID of a web crawling tool to retrieve data from the Web, manage and display it, and extract relevant information. We collected all these instruments in a collaborative environment called Web Crawling Virtual Laboratory, offering a GUI to operate remotely. Finally, we describe an ongoing activity on semantic crawling and data analysis to discover trends and correlations in finance.
