Data Visualisation-is it ok to scrap data from webpage to display as chart?

By vchongnee ·
I have a csv data file that contains over 2000 schools student population data, and I would like to have the data displayed as a basic bar chart dependent on what school has been selected.

Currently, we’ve had a colleague scrap the content of the page (I think that is the term? I’m assuming that the output of the data from the csv file is being scrapped direct from the webpage to form the bar chart), and then display the data as a bar chart, or is it more efficient to display the data directly from the csv file and then render as a bar chart?

I hope this makes sense, your advice would be very much appreciated.
