Is it possible to retrieve data from a website?

I have a list of vessel MMSI numbers. I would like to take each, enter it into the search bar on this page '' and then store the associated vessel type and length. Would this be possible using Matlab?
I had a look here:
But there doesn't seem to be a solution for my problem there.

The webread function can't be used to interact with a website. However, it is often possible to use direct URLs. If you look at a Google search, you will also notice that there is a pattern you could generate the link with.
Did you use the debugging tools of your browser to try to find a direct link pattern?

Hi Louise,
I understand you want to interact with a website to input your data.
Please find below the documentation about HTTP interface for MATLAB:
You can refer to the above documentation for various "put" and "get" methods that use the HTTP protocol. I hope this information helps resolve your query.
