I want to save the data shown on USGS webpage: USGS data using Matlab. I am using MatLab 2014a; therefore, I have to use 'urlwrite' function. When I use it, I get the HTML content, not the data in txt format. Any suggestions on how do I download the data that is available on the link? I used the following code:
url='https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/dv?cb_00060=on&format=rdb&site_no=03347000&referred_module=sw&period=&begin_date=1931-01-01&end_date=2018-01-26/';
filename='demo.txt';
outfilename = urlwrite(url,filename);
