Antarctic Mapping Tools

A toolbox for analysis and display of Antarctica-related data

| Watch this File

File Information

This toolbox was designed to streamline the process of importing, analyzing, and displaying Antarctica-related data. Functions in this toolbox have been designed to provide a standard framework to allow easy pairing of multiple different types of data sets (surface elevation, ice velocity, grounding line, etc). For a quick overview of these tools, click on the AMT Getting Started light bulb icon to the right. To find data-specific plugins for this toolbox, search the File Exchange site for "AMT".

A note: If you're wondering why AMT version numbers are strange, it's because in early 2015 the Matlab website retroactively applied version numbers automatically, and their numbering scheme does not match the version numbers I'd been using. If you have any questions about version history feel free to email me.

13 Jan 2015 1.1

Updated SCAR Gazetteer database and added scarclick function, which allows users to click on a map to get names of features. Updated some documentation.

13 Jan 2015 1.2

A few minutes ago I uploaded a version in which the default units in the pathdist function were kilometers. Now the default units are meters.

25 Jan 2015 1.3

V3: Addition of shadem function, which creates shaded relief (hillshade) images. Addition of find2drange function, which plugin functions will use to clip data to a region of interest. Improved documentation for scarlabel and scarclick functions.

21 Feb 2015 1.4

Inclusion of plotps, pcolorps, and patchps for creating polar stereographic maps without Matlab's Mapping Toolbox.

10 Jul 2015 1.5

Addition of crossovers function.

10 Jul 2015 1.5

Addition of crossovers function.

25 Jul 2015 1.6

Added scatterps, contourps, textps, graticuleps. Added support for polar stereographic kilometers. Added several documentation files and examples.

17 Sep 2015 1.7

Added psgrid function and islatlon. Updated names in SCAR database to be less like "Vostok, Lake" and more like "Lake Vostok".

17 Sep 2015 1.8

Added uv2vxvy and vxvy2uv functions.

22 Sep 2015 1.9

Added inpsquad function.

30 Oct 2015 1.91

mapzoom now allows center location in polar stereographic coordinates.

17 Nov 2015 1.95

Added surfps, plot3ps, scalebarps, coord, and clickz functions. Thanks to Tom Richter for suggesting inclusion of surfps and plot3ps.

17 Nov 2015 1.95

file upload error in previous attempt.

03 Dec 2015 1.96

Fixed a bug where graticuleps was resetting axis limits. Also updated the List of Functions to include some new plugins.
