Plot a google map on the background of the current figure using the Static Google Maps API.

Editor's Notes:

File Information
Description

plot_google_map.m uses the Google Maps API to plot a map in the background of the current figure.
It assumes the coordinates of the current figure are in the WGS84 datum, and uses a conversion code to convert and project the image from the coordinate system used by Google into WGS84 coordinates.
The zoom level of the map is automatically determined to cover the entire area of the figure. Additionally, it has the option to auto-refresh the map upon zooming in the figure, revealing more details as one zooms in.
The following code produces the screenshot:

lat = [48.8708 51.5188 41.9260 40.4312 52.523 37.982];
lon = [2.4131 -0.1300 12.4951 -3.6788 13.415 23.715];
plot(lon,lat,'.r','MarkerSize',20)
plot_google_map

Known Issues:
1) The static maps API is limited to 1000 requests per day when used with no API key. If you use this function a lot, you can obtain an API key and easily set the function to use it (see help for more details)
2) Saving the map with an image/matrix overlay drawn on top of it (especially a semi-transparent one) can sometimes cause unexpected results (map not showing etc.). If you're encountering such problems, it's recommended to use the export_fig submission:
http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/23629-exportfig
The combination that seems to work best:
set(gcf,'renderer','zbuffer')
export_fig('out.jpg')

Great tool!
Starting with Matlab 2014b I got big problems with scattered plots and color-bars. The color-bar stopped fitting to the scattered plot after plot_google_map was executed.
I had to change line 415 to solve the problem:
h = image(lonVect,latVect,uniImag, 'Parent', axHandle,'cdatamapping','scaled');

cheers,
Markus

Great reinforsment to work with GPS data.
Thanks!

Update from previous rating -- the code was modified to work with 2014b, so I'm changing my previous 4* rating to 5*!

17 Nov 2014 Alireza

Hello Zohar,
I was wondering if it's possible to download Google Maps and have it on computer and plot the coordinates without having internet?
also is it possible to have the initial plot with a desired zoom level.

Thanks,
Alireza

11 Nov 2014 Giorgos Papakonstantinou

Hi Zonar and thank you for you nice submission.
As already users have previously noted, there is an issue when running the code with R2014b, which originates from the fact the every handle is an object and not a double.

You have nicely included a ResizeFcn, which is invoked when the figure is resized.
In the ResizeFcn you use break in the for loop. Can you explain me the reason of doing that?
Because if you have two axes with google maps
i.e.
subplot(1,2,1); plot_google_map; subplot(1,2,2); plot_google_map;

the ResizeFcn function does not re-plot both maps and you turn up with a bad resolution in one of the two.

06 Nov 2014 Gijs

This is a helpful piece of code.

Unfortunately, as mentioned below, it breaks with 2014b. I'm having an issue at line 109 (inputParams.(['ax' num2str(axHandle*1e6,'%.0f')]) = varargin;). The error message that I'm getting is: "Undefined function 'mtimes' for input arguments of type 'matlab.graphics.axis.Axes'."

Thanks a lot for your response Zohar.. As you said, for loop is creating the issue in zooming speed.

26 Oct 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Larry - thanks for the heads up. I'm very busy in the coming weeks, will fix and release a new version as soon as I have some free time.

Hi Zohar, thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of code. I have a query, I'm trying to plot data points which are mapped on to corresponding co-ordinates. The problem is, the number of data points are large (around 15000 - 35000 points). I'm able to plot these data points on the map, but facing issues in zooming/panning speed. The map reaction becomes too slow whenever I try to zoom in or out with the data points on the map. Is there any limitations in the number of points on the map or should I check for any other parameter to overcome this issue.. Thanks

21 Oct 2014 Larry

plot_google_map() has broken with R2014b. (No sure about R2014a)

Line 108 gca returns now returns an axes object instead of a double as previously.

06 Oct 2014 pietro  
06 Oct 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Pietro - such a feature can be added quite easily.

In the meantime, if you have the mapping toolbox, you can use a few lines of code to achieve this:

load toolbox\map\mapdisp\private\regions.mat worldRegions
[tf,pos]=ismember('Turkey',{worldRegions.name});
axis([worldRegions(pos).lonlim worldRegions(pos).latlim])
plot_google_map

03 Oct 2014 pietro

Is it possible to provide a string to the function like "Turkey" and getting a map of Turkey?

wiwi - there seem to be random errors with some computer IPs.
Try obtaining an API key from Google and setting it, it would probably solve your problem.

If you need more help, feel free to contact me:
zoharby@gmail.com

28 Aug 2014 wiwi

Hi Zohar, this code does not work for me. It displays only the lat and long nodes. I have an error "Warning: Unable to download map form Google Servers.\nPossible reasons: no network connection, or quota exceeded (1000
map requests per day).
> In plot_google_map at 186"

I'm using Matlab2014a. Please help me!!! thanks

14 Aug 2014 Gary

Interesting - worked just fine on a different computer. Sorry of for the false alarm.

13 Aug 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Gary - works fine here without a key. Maybe it depends on your IP which is treated differently by Google for some reason.
Anyway, obtaining an API key and setting it is a matter of minutes, and would probably solve your problem.

13 Aug 2014 Gary

Did Google just change something that broke this? The code-generated URL states that a API key is required, but the link you provided in get_google_map for obtaining a key says that keys aren't needed anymore.

13 Aug 2014 Mevlut

Great work Zohar. I've one question:
If you use this code:

lat = [48.8708 51.5188 41.9260 40.4312 52.523 37.982];
lon = [2.4131 -0.1300 12.4951 -3.6788 13.415 23.715];
plot(lon,lat,'.r','MarkerSize',20)
plot_google_map

How do the plot_google_map know to use the variables lat and lon?
I've tried with 4 variables:

latR= [1 2 3 4]
lonR = [1 2 3 4]
latG =[1 2 3 4]
long = [1 2 3 4]
hold on, plot(lonR,latR,'.r','MarkerSize',20)
hold on, plot(lonG,latG,'.g','MarkerSize',10)
plot_google_map

It works perfectly!! BUT, how do the function plot_google_map know it to take that 4 variables?

Great work, thank you
MEvO

Hey Nice Work.

If you can add a script save map tiles on the computer it will reduce the requirement of API key. API key will be used only to to download additional maps or when required to update.

16 Jul 2014 Oriol Casamor Martinell

GREAT script. What is the relation between the image I see in the figure and the image output of the script? I need to relate latVec and lonVec with the image I obtain from saveas.

Thanks!

13 Jul 2014 pietro

Is it possible to get from google maps the position of commercial spots(e.g. restaurants, hotels, etc) in the map?

02 Jul 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Shatrughan - awesome tip. I will try to integrate it into the script soon.

01 Jul 2014 Shatrughan

hello Zohar,

Hope you remember as I pointed out the need to put 'map scale' on the google plots. You said that you will work on it later when you get time. It seems this is still a persistent issue with all users using your anyway 'GREAT' script. However, I have come across another submission on FEX for making scale and very simply I have been using these two scripts for my purpose since long time. Just thought that this might help others and also to you as it might save a bit of your time. :)

Here the link is:

http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/33545-automatic-map-scale-generation

After using plot_google_map
just use makescale

and you are done !!

Happy Matlabbing !!!

01 Jul 2014 pietro

Hi Zohar, thanks for your reply. I found this function that it is quite useful, unfortunately I can't control the scale, like 1:20000, but I can get only the distance.

29 Jun 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

pietro - that would be quite tricky, as it also depends on your screen size etc.
I wanted to add a scale indicator at the bottom of the map, but never got to it. Hope to add it sometime...

25 Jun 2014 pietro

Great job. Is it possible to control the map scale? By istance generating plots with a map scale of 1:20,000. Thanks

16 Jun 2014 Jorge

Zohar, I assumed that you knew about OSM tiles since you've displayed an impressibly awesome work with this function! My comment was more of an open thought directed at other members =)

10 Jun 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Jorge - working with tiles has its upsides (you can choose the resolution you want, possibility for local caching etc.), but will make the code much more complicated and slower to run since it will require several images to be downloaded for every map you want to display.
I don't have plans to get to it in the near future...
I don't plan

09 Jun 2014 Jorge

Amazing! My only comment is, would it make sense to pull the tiles from OpenStreetMap? For example, OSM tiles stored by MapQuest could be accessed even at 4000 tiles/second!

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mapquest#MapQuest-hosted_map_tiles

And are pulled simply like http://otile1.mqcdn.com/tiles/1.0.0/osm/zoom/x/y.jpg where x and y are easily calculated from the desired coordinates:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Slippy_map_tilenames#Octave

This way Google limits could be avoided, given OSM is now a very mature project. I would gladly implement this if I had the time, but I thought that maybe anyone else here is annoyed by Google and could use the idea =)

23 May 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Hi David,

The easiest way would be to set the zoom level you want manually (using xlim/ylim or the axis command), and then call plot_google_map again to force it to refresh to the current zoom.

23 May 2014 David

Great code! I can't figure out how to zoom in to a specific location. Using the comand zoom(15) will not zoom on my GPS point.

Is there any way to set the ylim and xlim of the graph (using those commands the map does not refresh)? I'm trying to use it in a loop to visualize my bicycle ride (needs to be pretty zoomed in)

15 May 2014 David Radin

Update to my comment below:

Realized the error was due to a bad coordinate reference - if coordinates do not fit on global plane, well, errors happen.

15 May 2014 David Radin

Zohar -
First of all, great function, great utility.

Wondering if you could comment on an error that suddenly appeared. The script was running perfectly but today I started it up and now it is not. I receive the following error:

Error using set
Bad property value found.
Object Name : axes
Property Name : 'YLim'
Values must be increasing and non-NaN.

Error in axis>LocSetLimits (line 206)
set(ax,...

Error in axis (line 94)
LocSetLimits(ax(j),cur_arg);

Error in plot_google_map (line 250)
axis(curAxis) % update axis as quickly as possible, before downloading new image

Error in test (line 11)
plot_google_map('APIKey','**key hidden**')

Appreciate your time!

13 May 2014 Xavier

Thanks for your quick feedback. In the meantime, I found a solution, I had "'PaperPositionMode','auto'" to the figure properties in addition of "'visible','off'" and it works pretty well and this allow to gain a lot f computing time.

13 May 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

OK, turns out the previous comment didn't get through...
Anyway, Xavier - the problem is caused because plot_google_map set a custom figure resize callback to change the zoom if the figure is resized and changes its aspect ratio.
You can disable it by commenting out line 434 which sets the figure resize callback:
set(figHandle, 'ResizeFcn', @update_google_map_fig);

13 May 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Hey, sorry my mistake, that flag was only in some local version I had here.
To resolve your problem comment out line 434:
set(figHandle, 'ResizeFcn', @update_google_map_fig);

12 May 2014 Xavier

Hi,
First thanks a lot for this script which is very useful.
I got a question where I did not find a solution myself. I use this script into a loop where each iteration represents a trip. I save the figure into png file. I would like to the figure does not appear. I used figure('Visible','off') but figures appear at the saveas command (found out though debug mode) but not if plot_google_map command is removed. I looked at line 379 and so on but without finding a solution. Do you have an idea?
Thanks

04 May 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Hi Jason,

From you error, it seems you are using a very old version of MATLAB, in which the syntax of the zoom command is different.
You can make it work by disabling all the functionality involving the auto refresh feature. Comment out lines 421-429.
This should make it work for you, but you'll need to call plot_google_map again if you want the map to refresh after you zoom in or out.

02 May 2014 Jason Oh

This is my error message below ;

??? Output argument "out" (and maybe others) not assigned during call to "C:\Program Files (x86)\MATLAB71\toolbox\matlab\graph2d\zoom.m (zoom)".

Error in ==> zoom at 81

Do you know why I got this message?

30 Apr 2014 Mani

Thank you for developing this Zohar. I can use it for a project I am working on. Is it possible to add area measurements tool to this map? If yes, how?
Thank You!!

14 Apr 2014 Clemens

Just figured out: After rendering with set(gcf,'renderer','opengl'), even saveas(gcf, 'out.jpg') works.

14 Apr 2014 Clemens

Hi Zohar,

thank you a lot for your support! I tried your suggestion and with the rendering setting of set(gcf,'renderer','zbuffer'), the background (map) + transparent settings vanished again.

set(gcf,'renderer','opengl') and exporting with export_fig.m though works for me :)

Best Regards

09 Apr 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Hi Clemens,

I've updated the Known Issues section, hopefully addressing your problem. Hope this helps:

09 Apr 2014 Clemens

Works perfectly for me. I have only the issue already raised by Larry, that if I export my figure to a picture, the map is missing. Do others also have troubles with that or any workaround except screenshots?

26 Mar 2014 Roger GALLOU

Hi Zohar,

I've the same message as Larry. When I post URL given in example in a Web browser (Firefox with no proxy configured), I can see the staticmap of Google Maps.
I've not problems with my quotas and I've really loaded the last version.
Can you give me some help on what it happens ?

Thanks. Regards.

19 Feb 2014 Anuja

Kudos to you, Its really nice, working fine for me...I tried it with two points.
I really wanted to ask one thing, How can we extract the latitude longitude points between two points as in between the source and the destination, Do we have to enter it manually or do we require some coding for the same.
Thanks

08 Feb 2014 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Larry, are you sure you're using the latest version?
If yes, you can try putting a breakpoint at line 316 - urlwrite(url,filename);
copy the url to your browser and see if it works there.
Anyway, if you need more help feel free to contact me:

07 Feb 2014 Larry

For couple of days plot_google_map can't be used, in both my computer and my colleague's. It kept showing:

Warning: Unable to download map form Google Servers.
Possible reasons: no network connection, or quota exceeded.
Consider using an API key if quota problems persist.
> In plot_google_map at 318

My quota is not a problem. I also have tried to use the API key but to no avail. Any idea?

Thanks!

18 Dec 2013 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Naveed - v3 is only for the javascript API. This code uses the Static Maps API which still uses v2.

If you already have the heatmap data as a matrix, you can simply plot it with IMAGE and give an AlphaData matrix with values <1 to make it semi transperent.
If you have point data, you'll first need to convert it to a heatmap matrix. I need to do it myself for a project in the coming weeks. If I don't find an existing solution I'll probably create one and hopefully submit it to the FEX.

17 Dec 2013 Naveed

Hey, thanks for this great code! Just what I needed. Quick question: are you planning on upgrading this to the v3 of google maps API? Also, could you recommend how to add a heat map layer to the rendered map?

15 Dec 2013 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Gabriel - there shouldn't be any recursion in this code. Please send me an example how to reproduce the error.

10 Dec 2013 Gabriel

I was able to do a plot once or twice, but now I am reaching max. recursion limit all the time. Any help?

24 Nov 2013 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Konstantinos - Simply call plot_google_map after plotting the route. It should display the map in the background of the route.

24 Nov 2013 Konstantinos

Great job, and really helpful. I' m trying to plot a certain route on the map which is in a gpx file, which i created from google maps. I use the gpxread function to read the file , I can display the route on a seperate window, but i don't know how to display the route on the map. Does anyone have any idea?

14 Oct 2013 Alexandre

Hello Zohar!
With your new code and after cheking mine It seems that the map isn't stretched (also when you remove "axis equal" ....). Many Thanks

14 Oct 2013 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Alexandre - I think what you mean is that the map is stretched in one axis, which shouldn't happen with the new version.
If you're having the same problem with the new version, please send me an example code to reproduce the problem.

11 Oct 2013 Alexandre

Nice job, very useful, many thanks. But I exactly have the same question as Chad Greene (Mar 2012). Does anyone know how to get the image in overhead view instead of 60° inclinaison? Thanks

23 Aug 2013 Preetham Aghalaya Manjunatha

Really good one! I was planning to make a GPS tracker for my project, I found exactly what I am looking for. But needs quite a bit of work to make this for realtime tracking or for post-processing.

Amit, with the new scale=2 param which is used by default, you actually get a 1280x1280 image, which gives a much nicer rendering (though responds somewhat slower...)

15 Nov 2012 peter  
09 Nov 2012 Floris

Hi Amit,

the 640*640 limit is set by the google API. see https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/staticmaps/index for more information

09 Nov 2012 Amit

Good work there Zohar Bar-Yehuda. And very helpful for my work, thank you.
Though I wonder why is the image size limited to 640X640. It would be very helpful to have this limitation removed. Perhaps a good idea to have the image sized in proportion to screen size. Screen size can be obtained from
java.awt.Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize()

Thanks again.

08 Aug 2012 Sebastian Holmqvist

From what I've gathered, Google switched from counting usage per domain to per user instead. So basically if you use Static Maps on your website, a single user using up all of the quota won't affect any other users, only that particular user.

Other than that, great piece of software! It was easy to get compatible with older Matlab (2003) and works like a charm under Matlab R2008b.

As for future requests, caching (i.e renaming and not removing) tiles would be awesome! I realize that storing tiles might violate Google's terms, but temporary would certainly do the trick!

15 Jul 2012 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Kart - I think there is a problem with the API key mode. It seems like Google ignores it since the requests have no referrer field in the HTTP header. Will try investigating it for a solution.

13 Jul 2012 Heiko  
12 Jul 2012 Kart

I tried it with my own API key
plot_google_map(‘APIKey’,'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx’)

but Iam getting the warning quota exceeded. what should i do?

26 Jun 2012 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Scale is a great idea, and quite easy to implement. I'll try adding it when I have some time.

26 Jun 2012 Shatrughan

Great script !! simple and easy to use..however, I have a question, how to put map scale on the plot? also if you could add direction symbol (North/South)..it would be great..any response will be appreciated..

14 Jun 2012 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Just noticed they changed the API and introduced the API key again.
It doesn't say what's the limit if you don't use any key, but from a quick test it looks like it's 400 per day (per IP I guess).

If you do get your own key, you can use up to 25,000 requests per day. I'll try to upload a new version soon with an easy way to put your own key.

14 Jun 2012 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Hi Marco,

This function uses Google's Static Maps API, and is therefore perfectly legal. It's also limited to 1000 map requests per day as specified in the API. See:
https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/staticmaps/

13 Jun 2012 Marco

Have anyone considered possible legal issues in this application?
As far as i know, it's forbidden the access to the maps through the direct creation of the url.
The access is legal only through the api's google offers (such as javascript).

In case you have different informations please let us know!

Thanks

Hey, great function!

I was wondering one thing. I have to plot a wind map over the ocean, close to the coast. Therefore I would like to get the coastline on the top, and the land just represented as a grey or black surface on top of my contour plot. Is it possible to get the land of the googlemap background on top of my countour plot?

06 Mar 2012 Chad Greene

Ah, there's an easy fix: simply add "axis equal" after the plotting command.

02 Mar 2012 Chad Greene

This is unbelievably easy to install and use!

Only one question: it seems to be plotting the 45° angle view, whether I choose roadmap, terrain, or satellite. Any ideas of how to get the overhead image?

Hi there zohar,

Hope you are fine,
actually i have a power plot of an antenna radiation level at ground level which spread over some 300 meters. now what i want to do is placing the power plot on a specific region on google earth so that i can see how the power plot is in the region where the antenna is, can you help me?

10 Aug 2011 Michael Wengler

Outstanding, easy to use, elegant!

27 Dec 2010 Zohar Bar-Yehuda

Seb - I am converting the PNG map downloaded (when using roadmap) to a truecolor image to prevent problems with conflicting colormaps, so I don't really know why you're having problems.

Maybe you can send me an example code you use, and I will check it out.

22 Dec 2010 Seb Biass

Wow, that is cool, thanks!
Question: I am using a contourf plot and adding the map behind. So I set the colormap and the transparency for the contourf, but all colors change when I plot the background map. Any idea where that could come from?

Thanks!

Updates
18 Jun 2012

- Support use of the "scale=2" parameter by default for finer rendering (set scale=1 if too slow).
- Auto-adjust axis extent so the map isn't stretched.
- Set and use an API key which enables a much higher usage volume per day.

07 Oct 2013

- Improved functionality of AutoAxis, which now handles any shape of map axes.
Now also updates the extent of the map if the figure is resized.
- Added the ShowLabels param which allows hiding the textual labels on the map.

25 Mar 2014

Version 1.4 - 25/03/2014
      - Added the language parameter for showing labels in a local language
      - Display the URL on error to allow easier debugging of API errors
