Scraping Road Directions from WV




Is it possible to programmically scrape (or extract) road directions from the web viewer into a usable text format?


A scenario: Work Order is generated with customers name & address, work order #, job instructions, etc...    and somewhere on the page it has directions to the job in a format like:


[Directions: From HQ, Drive South 2.5 Miles on First Avenue, Turn Left at First Signal, Proceed .5 Miles to Job at 2345 West Main Street]


Something like that. I figure if the web viewer can display a visual map on the screen, maybe there is a way to tap into the code that produces the road map, yeah?


Thanks in advance.
