How to extract tables from PDF using Python Pandas and tabula-py. Do you know yet? If you are still wondering about it then this article is for you.
This tutorial is an improvement of my previous post, where I extracted multiple tables without Python
pandas. In this tutorial, I will use the same PDF file, as that used in my previous post, with the difference that I manipulate the extracted tables with Python
The code of this tutorial can be downloaded from my Github repository.
Almost all the pages of the analysed PDF file have the following structure:
Image by Author
In the top-right part of the page, there is the name of the Italian region, while in the bottom-right part of the page there is a table.

I want to extract both the region names and the tables for all the pages. I need to extract the bounding box for both the tables. The full procedure to measure margins is illustrated in my previous post, section Define margins.
This script implements the following steps:
[top,left,bottom,width]. Data within the bounding box are expressed in cm. They must be converted to PDF points, since
tabula-pyrequires them in this format. We set the conversion factor
fc = 28.28.
In this example, we scan the pdf twice: firstly to extract the regions names, secondly, to extract tables. Thus we need to define two bounding boxes.
