Very nice, Thank you. I wanted to ask you if you were able to put a legend on your figure?

I tried doing so and did not have any luck

Thank you for your efforts

Very nice example. Shows basic interactions of different Matlab functions. On my machine, I had to download the image and do the imread locally, but otherwise great.

Updated globe texture map URL to point to one on Wikipedia. Added option of setting the globe up parented to an hgtransform object in order to easily play rotation.
