I am trying to make a map over a very small area and three decimals is not enough to distinguish between longitude tick labels on my x axis. How can I tell it to include for decimals on that axis? It automatically includes 4 for my y axis.
figure
imagesc(AN(dlatlim,dlonlim))
set(gca,'Xtick',1:400:length(x_label2),'XTickLabel',x_label(1:400:length(x_label2)));
set(gca,'Ytick',1:400:length(y_label2),'YTickLabel',y_label(1:400:length(y_label2)));
set(gca,'fontsize',16)

ax = gca;
ax.XAxis.TickLabelFormat = '%.4g';

Are x_label or y_label sorted in descending order? If so then that imagesc call would flip the image.
But also some image related operations automatically set YDir property to 'reverse'
