length

Return number of elements in geographic or planar vector

Description

example

n = length(v) returns the number of elements contained in the geographic or planar vector v.

Examples

collapse all

Create a geopoint vector and find its length.

load coastlines
p = geopoint(coastlat, coastlon);
length(p)
ans = 9865
length(coastlat)
ans = 9865

Input Arguments

collapse all

Geographic or planar vector, specified as a geopoint, geoshape, mappoint, or mapshape object.

Output Arguments

collapse all

Number of elements in vector v, returned as a nonnegative integer scalar. The result is equivalent to size(v,1).
