Dear MATLAB experts,
I installed the Mapping toolbox for my MATLAB R2018b and trying to use the WORLDMAP function, but it gives me an error:
>> worldmap world
Error using axesm (line 140)
Unrecognized property: Spheroid
Error in regionmap>constructMapAxesWorld (line 488)
ax = axesm(...
Error in regionmap (line 107)
h = constructMapAxes(latlim, lonlim, e);
Error in worldmap (line 122)
ax = regionmap(mfilename, varargin);
Thank you in advance!

I don't get that error Tatiana.
I'm running 2018b:
MATLAB Version: 9.5.0.944444 (R2018b)
Mapping Toolbox Version 4.7 (R2018b)
The three lines of code in the help
worldmap('World')
load coastlines
plotm(coastlat,coastlon)
produce the image in the help
z_output.jpg
So I would guess you've an installation error?
good luck, Mark.

Try any of the following:
1. Run "which -all" command to the handle to see if the command is shadowed in MATLAB search path .
2. Try adding "figure" before running the "worldmap" command
3. Re-install MATLAB and the issue was resolved.

The third option helped, thank you!
I removed MATLAB completely from my computer and installed everything again. The Mapping Toolbox works perfectly now.
