This function creates a histogram of distances between geolocated waypoints assuming a great circle path on the WGS84 ellipsoid.
n = disthist(...)
[n,xout] = hist(...)
disthist(lat,lon) without output arguments produces a histogram plot of the output of distances between points given by geographic coordinates lat and lon. disthist distributes the bins along the x-axis between the minimum and maximum values of distances between points in meters.
disthist(lat,lon,distances_or_nbins) specifies an array of distances between points (equivalent to x in the hist function) or the scalar number of bins. By default distances_or_nbins = 10.
n = disthist(...) does not produces a histogram plot, but only returns the number of elements in each bin as described above.
[n,xout] = hist(...) returns vectors n and xout containing the frequency counts and the bin locations. You can use bar(xout,n) to plot the histogram.
