camposm

Set camera position using geographic coordinates

Syntax

camposm(lat,long,alt)
[x,y,z] = camposm(lat,long,alt)

Description

camposm(lat,long,alt) sets the axes CameraPosition property of the current map axes to the position specified in geographic coordinates. The inputs lat and long are assumed to be in the angle units of the current map axes.

[x,y,z] = camposm(lat,long,alt) returns the camera position in the projected Cartesian coordinate system.

Examples

Look at northern Australia from a point south and one Earth radius above New Zealand:

figure
axesm('globe','galt',0)
gridm('glinestyle','-')
load topo
geoshow(topo,topolegend,'DisplayType','texturemap');
demcmap(topo)
camlight; 
material(0.6*[ 1 1 1])
plat = -50; plon = 160; 
tlat = -10; tlon = 130;
camtargm(tlat,tlon,0); 
camposm(plat,plon,1); 
camupm(tlat,tlon)
set(gca,'CameraViewAngle',75)
land = shaperead('landareas.shp','UseGeoCoords',true)
linem([land.Lat],[land.Lon])
axis off
