comet3m

Project 3-D comet plot on map axes

comet3m will be removed in a future release. Use the following instead:

[x,y,z] = mfwdtran(lat,lon,z);
comet3(x,y,z,p) 

Syntax

comet3m(lat,lon,z)
comet3m(lat,lon,z,p)

Description

comet3m(lat,lon,z) traces a comet plot through the points specified by the input latitude, longitude, and altitude vectors.

comet3m(lat,lon,z,p) specifies a comet body of length p*length(lat). The input p is 0.1 by default.

A comet plot is an animated graph in which a circle (the comet head) traces the data points on the screen. The comet body is a trailing segment that follows the head. The tail is a solid line that traces the entire function.

Examples

Create a 3-D comet plot of the coastlines data:

load coast
z = (1:length(lat))'/3000;
axesm miller
framem; gridm;
setm(gca,'galtitude',max(z)+.5)
view(3)
comet3m(lat,long,z,0.01)
