Hello,
I am using the following to map out a trend in data over a region:
ax = worldmap(latlim, lonlim);
S = shaperead('landareas','UseGeoCoords',true);
surfacem(lat, lon, inpdata)
geoshow([S.Lat], [S.Lon],'Color','black');
This should be simple but I am not seeing fora with it. Is there any way to now add in a surfacem plot of a matrix holding p-values of the trends? I would like to simply add a cross where the corresponding cell in the p-value matrix is < 0.05.
Thanks!

You'll find a few hatch filling functions on the File Exchange site. For example, the ones mentioned here.
Generally, to apply non-mapping toolbox plotting functions to maps, you'll need to do something like
[x,y] = mfwdtran(lat,lon);
contourf(x,y,z)
and then you'd be able to use hatchfill as shown in the Pick-of-the-Week example.

Hello,
I am getting the same error after updating to Matlab 2015.
Have you found a fix for this problem?
Cheers
