Create South-Polar Azimuthal Projection

This example shows how to create a South-polar Stereographic Azimuthal projection map extending from the South Pole to 20 degrees S, centered on longitude 150 degrees West. Include a value for the Origin property in order to control the central meridian.

Load coastline data and display map.

load coastlines
figure('Color','w')
axesm('stereo','Origin',[-90 -150],'MapLatLimit',[-90 -20])
axis off;
framem on;
gridm on;
mlabel on;
plabel on;
setm(gca,'MLabelParallel',-20)
geoshow(coastlat,coastlon,'DisplayType','polygon')

The call to axesm above is equivalent to:

axesm('stereo','Origin',[-90 -150 0],'FLatLimit',[-Inf 70])
