File Information
Description

The scaleruler function in the Mapping Toolbox is clunky and difficult to work with. The scalebar function presented here is simple and intuitive. See the documentation file to the right for function Syntax, Description, and Examples.

Shoot, I neglected to mention--As of the July 25, 2015 update, scalebar now requires the pathdist function, which can be found on the File Exchange site here: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/47042
