I have this map I made using mapshow function:
I used the data in this structure to create the map:
My function is (I need to plot each citie with specific color):
load mapnew.mat % the structure with data
load resultscorrigido.mat % just for colors of cities
[C,ia,ic] = unique(results(:,1));
palett = flipud(hsv(numel(C))); % parula, jet, hsv
for ii = 1:numel(Snew)
color = palett(ic(ii),:);
I want to plot the names of the cities (Snew(:).NAME) using each LAT x LON coordinates. I tried the function textm, but I get an error:
Error using gcm (line 25)
Not a map axes.
Error in textm (line 96)
mstruct = gcm;
How can I put a code inside my for loop to plot each citie name in my map?
Thanks in advance!

Hi! Instead of textm(), try text(). Mapshow displays a map without projection so you don't have any mapping axes and therefore don't need the "m" suffix on your plot commands.
