File Information

The Bedmap2 Toolbox for Matlab obtains latitude/longitude coordinates corresponding to each pixel of the Bedmap2 data set. This toolbox also provides functions for extracting raw Bedmap2 data, generating maps of Bedmap2 data, or interpolating Bedmap2 data values at any arbitrary lat/lon location, line, or grid. This toolbox is intended to aid in pairing the Bedmap2 data set with data referenced to latitude-longitude pairs, and provide simple commands for plotting the grounded and floating ice of Antarctica.
If you do not currently have the Bedmap2 data on your computer, the bedmap2_install.m file will download it for you. Several examples of how to use these files are detailed in the documentation pdf.
