Fantastic toolbox, have been using it for spatial data analysis, and have been very happy with it!
One comment following up on Johannes Traugott below: ge_point (as well as ge_point_new) allow passing on a description for each object, which is then displayed in a pop-up balloon. Passing on the description to multiple objects seems to work fine. However, only a subset of objects (apparently random) actually displays a balloon. I have small (~10 KB) kml files with only about 20-50 objects, so it doesn't seem like size issue. Have you encountered this before?
Either way, great work!
First of all,
Let me thank you for this package. It's been solving lot's of problems for me.
I have one question though. Why is ge_quiver not being distributed anymore? I had to recover it from a much older version. It works, so I'm not sure why it's not being offered with the rest of the package.
Maybe it's speed of the ge_quiver algorithm. To that, I have made a few tweaks to make it faster.. I would gladly send you the code if you want.

Google Earth Toolbox
Various plotting/drawing functions that can be saved as KML output, and loaded in Google Earth
Regarding the Matlab Google Earth toolkit:
And as directed in the README file, typing this:
>> googleearth -docinstall
I get this:
Click on the MATLAB Start button->Desktop Tools->View Source Files...
...and click Refresh Start Button.
However, in 2013a and 2013b, there is no “Refresh Start Button.” (and nothing comes up in the help for this term)
What does this do, and how do we do it in the latest versions of Mathlab?
Great Submission! One thing that isn't clear is your use of Corrective Factor SF. Is there a corresponding paper that you could refer me to? Moreover, something seems to be wrong with the last nested for loop. As of now, the line for i = 1:length(sf) is equivalent to the line i = length(sf), since you don't carry any history for utmp with the iterating index i.
