Did Google just change something that broke this? The code-generated URL states that a API key is required, but the link you provided in get_google_map for obtaining a key says that keys aren't needed anymore.
Starting with Matlab 2014b I got big problems with scattered plots and color-bars. The color-bar stopped fitting to the scattered plot after plot_google_map was executed.
I had to change line 415 to solve the problem:
h = image(lonVect,latVect,uniImag, 'Parent', axHandle,'cdatamapping','scaled');
Elmar, great work!
Just one comment: I used it in Matlab R2013a, and the code cannot generate SelectionChangeFcn for buttongroup panel. Even I manually added the SelectionChangeFcn into the m file, it does not work in the GUI.
BTW, I have seen the comments by Syed Hussain and your response, but it may still not work for R2013a. Could you please provide a new version for the latest MATLAB? Thank you!
