File Information

* * * New in February 2015: * * *
* Data loading, interpolation, and plotting are *much* faster and more powerful.

* Matlab's Mapping Toolbox is no longer required to load data, interpolate, or make simple plots, although the Mapping Toolbox is required for some fancy features.

* Check out the new bedmap2_profile function.

This version uses tiff-formatted data. If you've installed a previous version, you'll have to re-run the installation script, but this installation is much faster than previous versions.

If you do not currently have the Bedmap2 data on your computer, the bedmap2_install.m file will download it for you.
