You can set up UTM to calculate coordinates without generating a map display, using the defaultm function. The utmzone and utmgeoid functions help you select a zone and an appropriate
Transform a regular data grid into a new one with its data rearranged to correspond to a new coordinate system using the neworig function. You can transform coordinate systems of data grids as
You can create UTM maps with axesm , just like any other projection. However, unlike other projections, the map frame is limited to an 8-by-6 degree map window (the UTM zone).
To display areas that extend across more than one UTM zone, use the Mercator projection in a transverse aspect. UTM is a zone-based coordinate system and is designed to be used like a map
The best way to gain an understanding of projection aspect is to experiment with orientation vectors. The following example uses a pseudocylindrical projection, the sinusoidal.
