Hello,
I am using the code below to create a map of Ireland. I found this code online.
I am just wondering apart from land, is there other options that you can load into the map such as topographic information or the names of towns and cities. Is there a list of options?
ax = worldmap('ireland');
land = shaperead('landareas', 'UseGeoCoords', true);
geoshow(ax, land, 'FaceColor', [0.5 0.7 0.5])
Thank you

Such data often comes incorporated with most popular GIS packages. There are a ton of online sources. Google is your friend. If you have the mapping toolbox in Matlab, then you can connect to a multitude of map servers. There are very many. I encourage you to read the documentation for the mapping toolbox, you will find some examples there. There is a learning curve to Matlab also, and it is, imo, not the best tool for this job.

I'm not too familiar with the mapping toolbox, but this might help
