symbolm

Project point markers with variable size

Syntax

symbolm(lat,lon,z,'MarkerType')
symbolm(lat,lon,z,'MarkerType','PropertyName',PropertyValue,...)
h = symbolm(...)

Description

symbolm(lat,lon,z,'MarkerType') constructs a thematic map where the symbol size of each data point (lat, lon) is proportional to it weighting factor (z). The point corresponding to min(z) is drawn at the default marker size, and all other points are plotted with proportionally larger markers. The MarkerType string is a LineSpec string specifying a marker and optionally a color.

symbolm(lat,lon,z,'MarkerType','PropertyName',PropertyValue,...) applies the line properties to all the symbols drawn.

h = symbolm(...) returns a vector of handles to the projected symbols. Each symbol is projected as an individual line object.
