File Information

[lat,lon] = scarloc('Totten Glacier') returns a nominal latitude and longitude of Totten Glacier.

scarlabel('Totten Glacier') will center a label about Totten Glacier.

[h,lat,lon] = scarlabel('Totten Glacier') will return the lat/lon coordinates of Totten Glacer (whether you have the Mapping Toolbox or not) and h, the handle of the label. If a map is current, this will also place the label on the map.

scarlabel(' Recovery Glacier','fontsize',10, 'HorizontalAlignment','left'.'marker','kx') will place a black 'x' marker at the location of Recovery Glacier, and a 10-pt font label to the right of the marker.

Improved error handling. Changed database name to scarnames.mat for consistency.
