Hi,

Without using the mapping toolbox, is there a way to plot latitude and longitude values onto a graph? I would like a plot that has a dot representing each location that I specify.

Thanks!

Set up an x-axis that goes from -180 to +180 (east is positive)
Set a y-axis tht goes from -90 to +90 (north is positve)
Plot the points (in decimal degrees) using the above convention.
