Web-scraping requires knowledge of some programming language. In essence, it is an art of transforming HTML to a format you like. For common tasks, you can find some tools easily on the net e.g., extract all tables from this URL and save them as csv.
For example, you can get the html from the above link using `curl` and pass it to `pandoc` (or html2text) to convert to plain text. [dilawars@localhost Downloads]$ curl https://vmc.gov.in/WaterLevel.aspx | pandoc -f html -t plain % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 100 14330 100 14330 0 0 33325 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 33325 Water Level Statistics Ajwa Vishwamitri Date Time Level (Feet) ------------ ------- -------------- 17/06/2020 06:00 207.65 17/06/2020 03:00 207.55 17/06/2020 00:00 207.55 Date Time Level (Feet) ------------ ------- -------------- 17/06/2020 06:00 4.00 16/06/2020 21:00 4.00 16/06/2020 18:00 4.00 Copy paste this in a Libreoffice-Calc or MS OFFICE spreadsheet and see if it gets converted to a spreadsheet. Anyway, this webpage does accept a POST request but only in encrypted format. So it is essentially useless. Contact the author of https://craigdsouza.github.io/data/IMD-Hourly-Precipitation-Data, he scraped rainfall data from IMD website (2018). This data is probably of no use to you but he might know a better source to get this data. I couldn't locate time series data for a city on IMD website. best, Dilawar On Tue, Jun 16, 2020 at 10:42 PM Vikas Rana <viknikw...@gmail.com> wrote: > I don't know how to scrape the data...
