Map Display

2-D and 3-D map display, customization, and interaction

Mapping Toolbox™ includes graphical display functions for visualizing geospatial data in 2D and 3D, and an interactive app for 2D map displays. You can combine vector and raster data sets in single display, and create contour displays and other types of thematic maps. For information about the analogy between mapping graphics and standard MATLAB® graphics, see Introduction to Mapping Graphics.

  • Map Axes
    Define map axes; set map axes properties
  • Map Customization
    Set the outer limits of the map, control the display of the grid of meridians and parallels, add annotations, such as a north arrow or a graphic scale
  • Vector and Raster Map Display
    Display vector or raster data on map
  • 3-D Map Display
    Display 3-D view of globe; create 3-D map of elevation data; drape image over terrain data; customize shading and lighting
  • Thematic Maps
    Convey attribute data on map; contour maps, stem maps, scatter maps
  • Interact with Maps
    View and interact with map axes and data
