I downloaded a .shp file of uk catchment boundary (CAMELS-GB): https://www.dropbox.com/s/1m5kttkqhqlktnv/CAMELS_GB_catchment_boundaries.shp?dl=0
I want to read the data on matlab so i used the code:
boundary = shaperead('CAMELS_GB_catchment_boundaries.shp')
And errors come out. My question is: How can I view the boundary?
Thanks.

I think your download is scrambled Jimmy.
I've just downloaded the dataset from CEH
Uncompressed it.
Then uncompressed CAMELS_GB_catchment_boundaries.zip
to get this directory
Open it in matlab and then this is the result:
Good luck.
