Once a map axes object has been created with
axesm, whether map data is displayed or not, it is possible to change the current projection as well as many of its parameters.
This example shows how to create simple maps using the
This example shows how to create maps of the United States using the
setm function, you can change the current map projection on the fly if the map display was created in a way that permits reprojection.
This example shows how to use geographic and nongeographic objects in a map axes.
If you prefer that your maps have white backgrounds instead, you can create figures with the command
When you create a map, you can use one of the Mapping Toolbox™ built-in user interfaces (UIs), or you can build the graphic with MATLAB® and Mapping Toolbox functions.
The figure window created using
the same set of tools and menus as any MATLAB figure, and is by default blank, even if there is map data in your workspace.
Understanding Mapping Toolbox functions as extensions of MATLAB graphics
The Globe display is a three-dimensional view of geospatial data capable of mapping terrain relief or other data for an entire planet viewed from space.
